Yakima Schools

The College Success Foundation has been working in Yakima Public Schools since 2001, starting at A.C. Davis High School with the original Washington State Achievers Scholarship Program. It has expanded over the years and now offers the CSF Achievers Program modeled after its precursor at both Yakima high schools. It also offers a middle school program to increase college and career knowledge.


Achievers Scholars (grades 11-12)

CSF college preparatory advisors work with 11th and 12th graders (Achievers Scholars) at the high schools to help them become college-bound and college-ready. Achievers Scholars are low-income, promising students who need financial and targeted academic support to prepare for a successful college experience. Located on the high school campuses, CSF college prep advisors provide direct support services to guide students on their path to college.

HERO program (grades 9-10)

The Higher Education Readiness Opportunity (HERO) program provides the support and guidance that 9th and 10th grade students need to successfully navigate the transition from middle school to high school, manage the academic rigor of high school, and become college-ready. HERO Advisors work full-time in schools and serve as coaches, advocates and mentors to students in the program, providing both individual and group engagement strategies to meet student and program goals.
