Welcome to SoMD CAN

Empowering students to achieve success in higher education.

Our Mission: Increase the college-going rate among the region’s high school students with specific focus on those students who are first generation college-bound, underserved populations and who are academically talented. Our goals are to offer opportunities through our curriculum-based program to build awareness of and preparedness for the college admissions and financial aid process with the intent to build a local workforce.


  • As a recent graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, I am extremely grateful for all the help and support SoMD CAN has given me, from my days at Patuxent High School through my college and law school career.

  • SoMD CAN assisted me in finding financial aid for college, but most importantly they encouraged me to be successful. The educational lessons on college and positive words helped make the process of applying for college less stressful.
    With all the emotional and financial challenges my family and I were dealing with, SoMD CAN helped me to see them as opportunities of personal strength to better myself and further my education.”
