NHA and Reality Changers are teaming up to young people realize their college dreams! NHA College Academy is a program that helps underprivileged high school students reach their goals of attending college. The program, hosted by NHA and the Reality Changers College Apps Academy, gives students access to resources that will help make their college dreams a reality!

Students who are in the 11th grade are welcome to apply.
