Over the past year we collaborated with a Fortune 500 Research and Development company to co-create an app that authentically connects high school students to the college experience. Our vision is to increase equity, social justice and college access by continuing to develop the app to create authentic connection and demystify the college experience by bringing together high school students from rural and low-income backgrounds with their peers who are already enrolled in college.
Opt In & Join the Movement
We need your help to keep developing the app. Signing into the Studence App and opting into the new terms of service will allow you to stay involved and join a movement of other students from around the country who are seeking to increase equity and college opportunity.
About Peak Education
Peak Education disrupts the status quo by closing opportunity gaps in our community. We believe that every student deserves to reach for their full potential and that all willing learners can do so. We do this by working to enact change at multiple levels beyond the individual students that participate directly in our program. Our work impacts families, schools, and our city to further access to education as well as social and economic inclusion.
Currently serving over 400 students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds in Colorado Springs from 7th grade through the completion of college, Peak Education empowers students—who might otherwise fall short of their personal goals and potential for success—to take ownership of their educational journeys and career pathways. Ninety percent of Peak Education scholars are the first in their family to complete a college degree and 87% identify as students of color. Nearly 90% qualify for the federal Free and Reduced lunch.
