Reverend Pinckney College Readiness Program



The Reverend Pinckney College Readiness Program offers high school students living in Beaufort, Charleston, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper counties the support and resources they need to prepare for the college application and selection process. We help students, their families, and supporters prepare for, research, evaluate, and ultimately select which college is right for them.


Students enrolled in the College Readiness Program will be exclusively eligible to be considered for the Reverend Pinckney Scholars Program during their senior year.


 Students who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply the fall of their junior year:

 • African American

 • Permanent residents of Beaufort, Charleston, Colleton, Hampton, or Jasper County

 • Have an unweighted GPA of at least 2.5

 • Taking courses to prepare for academic success during and after college

 • Planning to attend a two-year or four-year college upon graduation

 • Eligible for a Pell Grant (we will help you determine this)
