The College Preparatory Schools Program (CPSP) is an academic program that identifies, recruits, places, and supports students of color, in outstanding college preparatory middle and high schools nationally.
At A Better Chance, we recognize that students come from different backgrounds and educational opportunities so each application is evaluated on its own merit. We only select Scholars who we believe can thrive at our competitve Member Schools:
Prospective applicants should get started early; late applications are not encouraged as they severely limit opportunities for placements. Further, our application process begins 18 months prior to enrolling. For example, if a student is currently in the 7th grade, s/he would be applying for the 9th grade.
There are three major stages to the application process, each consisting of several small steps. Please go to the "How to Apply" page and follow each of the required steps.
