What is College Track?
College Track (CT) 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. Our students join College Track with limitless aspirations and we provide them with a comprehensive program and encouraging learning environment that empowers them to succeed. More than 90% of our students are admitted to a four-year university and 75% of our college students are currently enrolled in, or have graduated from, college. Over 85% of our students will be the first person in their family to earn a college degree.
