Getting students to and through college.


Thank you for your support of our high school seniors and college students! Most importantly, thank you for believing in our young people as they work to achieve their dream of obtaining a college degree.

This year, 40 high school seniors (30 from New London and 10 from Willimantic) are participating in CAP (the College Access Program.) Additionally, Higher Edge is supporting 140 college students at more than 20 different colleges and universities across the country. This includes 39 first year and 25 college seniors. We have also begun accepting applications for the CAP Class of 2023.

All advising continues to be accomplished virtually in one on one meetings. Events such as college tours, workshops and group activities, when deemed safe have been in person including: CAP Class of 2022 Meet & Greet, tours of Eastern CT State University and UCONN Avery Point and I Hit Submit week. Spring events include a Success Mix & Mingle, a young professionals after hours networking for our college seniors and Decision Day.

So if you share in our belief that all young people should have an equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals and dreams, please invest in our work by making a donation.

Gifts of all levels are welcome!
