MISSION

Our mission is to empower students from underserved communities to pursue higher education and beyond.

VISION

We envision a world where every student, no matter what socioeconomic status, will have an equal opportunity.

STORY

Taking any exam always made us nervous. When it came time to take the SAT, we were jealous of our friends who knew exactly what to expect. The SAT seemed like a life-defining obstacle. We wished we knew how best to study, how much to study, how to even think about going to college. 

We didn't have a program like Reach 1600 then, but now we’re bringing to our community what we wished we had--equal opportunity for underprivileged students to succeed in higher education.
