The College Admissions Made Possible (CAMP) in Birmingham provides underserved students with essential tools to gain access to the college or university of their choice.

“We serve elementary, middle, and high school students in the Birmingham and Black Belt regions with holistic educational support to develop academic, social, emotional, and physical literacy skills to help them excel in school and life,” said CAMP founder and Chairman of the Board Martin Nalls. “Since our inception in 2009, we have impacted over 23,000 students across Alabama. We continue to enhance our programs and increase our reach across the state.”

While the average high school graduation rate for economically disadvantaged students in Alabama is 85%, college and career readiness averages 63%. CAMP was established as a response to the underrepresentation of low-income students in post-secondary institutions. It provides college access services, including admissions workshops for students and parents, ACT classes, and customized college tours. The Alabama Power Foundation has awarded two grants to CAMP.
