About Us

Matriculate's mission is to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to our best colleges. Our vision is that one day all the best students in America will have access to and be supported in the best colleges—regardless of their socio-economic status or background—which will give them a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of their own lives and the lives of their families.

Matriculate leverages peer-to-peer relationships and networks to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to enroll in our best colleges. We train talented college students at top institutions to provide the information, guidance, and support that these high school students need to apply to, gain admission to, and excel at leading schools. College is an inflection point for low-income high-achievers, and Matriculate allows this overlooked segment of our country’s top talent to realize its potential and address income inequality from the bottom up.

Today, only 1/3rd of low-income high-achievers attend selective colleges each year. Matriculate intends to double that number and ensure that every year 2/3rds make the leap to the best colleges.

Matriculate is a founding partner of Bloomberg Philanthropies' college access and success initiative called CollegePoint, which aims to help as many as 65,000 students to apply to, enroll in, and graduate from the best colleges and universities.
