Princeton program is a model for helping low-income students attend college

Aug. 16, 2018

"The Princeton University Preparatory Program (PUPP) Class of 2018 celebrates their achievements at a graduation ceremony in May. The high school students will attend colleges including Barnard College, Duke University, Gettysburg College and the University of Richmond in the fall. PUPP’s mission is to help high-achieving, low-income students get accepted to and succeed in college and beyond."

"If it wasn’t for PUPP, I never would have applied to a woman’s college. I was like no way!” said Tia Outlaw, a 2018 PUPP graduate who will attend Mt. Holyoke this fall. “PUPP did a great job of shifting our perspectives and teaching us to take in all the opportunities. I visited Mt. Holyoke last year and fell in love with the campus. It has a great sense of community, which is important to me. I sat in on a class and felt comfortable enough to answer questions, even though I was not a student there yet."
