What is College Track?

College Track is a national education nonprofit that empowers students from underserved communities to reach their dreams of a college degree. Our mission is to close the achievement gap and create college-going cultures for students who are historically and currently underrepresented in higher education. We actively engage students over the course of 8 to 10 years, from the summer before high school through college graduation.
