College Track San Francisco

Program Description

College Track recruits students from underserved communities and works continuously with them from the summer before 9th grade through college graduation. Our 10-year program removes the barriers that prevent students from earning their college degree by providing them with comprehensive academic support, leadership training, financial and college advising, and scholarships. We teach our students the skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond.

We are more than a college prep program. And our reach goes well beyond that of a tutoring center. The College Track model supports students through every crucial step of high school and college through college graduation.

Our four core service areas - Academic Affairs, College Affairs, Student Life, and College Success - are structured to prepare students for the academic and social demands of college. A student who completes our four-year high school program receives support equivalent to one additional year of high school.
