We know that you have big dreams about going to college. The Access College Foundation is a non-profit organization designed to help YOU get to college. Founded in 1988, the program is supported by local foundations, businesses and individuals who believe that every student who graduates from high school should have the opportunity to attend college or some other technical training.
