College Horizons is an annually occurring college admission workshop for Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and Native American sophomores and juniors in high school. College Horizons is held each summer at different college campus partners.  

Through our programs students experience residential life on a college campus while also learning extensively about the college admission and financial aid process.  Our expert faculty work one on one with students to help prepare them to put their best foot forward in the college application process, while also receiving guidance on selecting, affording and thriving on a campus that fits.  We are proud to say that College Horizons is the only workshop of its kind - a program focused solely on serving the unique needs and experiences of Native students throughout the nation and bringing that perspective into the college selection and application process.  Learn More.
