​​History

In 1986, Francie Tidey founded College Horizons—a nonprofit organization that addresses the challenging national problem of low college attendance among students with limited income and opportunities.​​ Through classroom presentations and individual counseling, College Horizons helps students in Sacramento-area high schools gain admission and financial aid to two-year and four-year public and private institutions throughout the country.​

In 1996, the California Student Aid Commission​ awarded College Horizons a state grant to become one of seventeen Cal-SOAP projects. College Horizons maintains its status as a nonprofit organization to help fund scholarships. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.​
