About Us

PENNCAP (Pennsylvania College Achievement Program) works closely with academically talented students, many from low-income or first-generation backgrounds, to support their success during their entire four years at Penn, from matriculation to graduation. Professional staff provide coaching, counseling, academic support, cultural enrichment, and assistance in developing meaningful personal and educational goals.

PENNCAP assists students with important life issues, such as identifying personal life priorities, clarifying career objectives, developing a financial budgeting plan, and maximizing their success at Penn.  PENNCAP students generally, but not always, begin the program by participating in the Pre-Freshman Program (PFP), a four-week academic experience augmented by counseling, academic coaching, and cultural activities. In PFP, students make personal connections with faculty, staff and fellow students, become familiar with the institution, experience first-hand the academic culture of the University, and set the stage for their next four years at Penn.

(Note: PENNCAP is funded jointly by a federal TRIO grant and the University of Pennsylvania.)
