Description

College Track is a national college completion program that empowers students from underserved communities to graduate from college. From the summer before 9th grade through college graduation, our 10-year program removes the barriers that prevent students from earning their college degree by providing  them  with  comprehensive  academic  support,  leadership training,  financial  and  college advising, and scholarships. We teach them the skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond. In four years, a College Track student receives support equivalent to one extra year of high school. 


The goal of the Academic Affairs program is to give students the academic support necessary to graduate from high school college-ready and college-eligible. For most students, this means a GPA of 3.0 or higher and an SAT math score of 530 or higher. Academic Coaches will manage a caseload of students to academic outcomes; tutor students in 9th-12th grade subjects; assist students with online credit recovery; provide academic advising; input and monitor student data; administer practice tests; and other duties as assigned, which may include facilitating SAT workshops or leading other academic workshops.


The team of College Track Academic Coaches is responsible for ensuring that all College Track students maximize their potential. To do this, students must receive support aligned to their individual needs; Coaches provide primary direct service for these needs in academics. Coaches will collaborate with Program Directors to implement programs that meet the needs of each student. Coaches will also gain administrative experience by fulfilling day-to-day administrative tasks.
