Description

About College Track:

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.


College Track started in 1997 with a cohort of 27 students in East Palo Alto. Today, we serve over 2,400 high school and college students in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, New Orleans, Colorado, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. In 10 years, we will serve over 10,000 students and increase our number of college graduates tenfold. Over our 17-year history, 93% of our high school seniors have been accepted to four-year colleges and our college graduation rate is 2.5 times the national average for low-income students.
