College Track believes all students in our nation should have the opportunity to earn a college degree. Our mission is to empower students from underserved communities to graduate from college.
We actively engage students over the course of ten years, from the summer before 9th grade through college graduation and beyond. Our students join College Track with limitless aspirations. We provide them with a comprehensive program and an encouraging learning environment that gives them the tools to succeed.
In the 2013/2014 academic year, College Track will serve over 1,600 high school and college students across our 6 sites in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Colorado. Over the past 16 years, more than 90% of our high school seniors have been admitted to four-year universities, and our students have graduated college at 2.5 times the national average for low-income students (19.5%). Over 85% of our students will be the first person in their family to earn a college degree.
