Pass With Flying Colors

Expanding Opportunity by Making College a Reality

Pass With Flying Colors (PWFC) prepares Chicago’s public high school students to be successful in college. At PWFC, we believe that a college degree provides opportunity, choice, and stability. Over eight years, we provide the holistic, individualized support that enables PWFC scholars to be the first in their families to earn a college diploma.

Family circumstances and lack of access to college resources should not be the insurmountable barriers to a college degree.

Join us to make college a reality.
