Program Description

TCI has more than ten years of experience placing highly motivated Hispanic students in four-year institutions. We work closely with high schools in Latin America empowering students to take the reins of their future.

Our students are among the top 5 or 10% in their class, over half of our students study in STEM fields, and perform better than 80% of students on their SAT. Fluency in english and unwavering personal commitment is a pre-requisite for our program.
