CollegeCommunityCareer envisions a future with more employed, civically-minded college graduates from the Houston region.
CollegeCommunityCareer fosters a college-going culture with low income, first generation high school students and families. We prepare students for admission to and graduation from a four year university based on these four pillars: college success, leadership development, civic engagement and career discovery.
CollegeCommunityCareer partners with area high schools and students beginning the sophomore year in high school until they have completed a Bachelor’s degree. Our curriculum is based on our 4 pillars and provides organized instruction through 10th, 11th, and 12th grade.
The 4 Pillars seek to develop the whole student through a progressive three year program where students gain the tools needed to manage all facets of the university experience.
We hold afterschool classes on the students’ school site to ensure that students successfully engage in the program. Mid-year workshops and summer sessions ranging from ACT/SAT prep to essay writing to touring colleges are organized in an effort to reinforce topics discussed in class and to ensure students have continuous learning opportunities.
Once students have graduated from high school, we ensure that they successfully enroll into a college/university and support them by maintaining twice a semester contacts, adhering to student created academic and personal goals, and hosting workshops and one on one meetings during school breaks.
