About College Track
College Track is a national college completion program that empowers students from underserved communities to graduate from college. 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 them the skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond. In four years, a College Track student receives support equivalent to one extra year of high school.
College Track started in 1997 with a cohort of 25 students in East Palo Alto. Today, we serve over 2,400 high school and college students in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, New Orleans, Colorado, Los Angeles and Sacramento. By 2020, we will double the number of
students we serve and produce nearly 1,000 college graduates. Last year, 96% of our high school seniors were accepted to four-year colleges and our college graduation rate is 2.5 times the national average for low-income students.
About College Track in the Los Angeles Area
This year, College Track will expand to our 12th location – in Los Angeles. The Crenshaw District will be the home of our third College Track center in Los Angeles. College Track LA first opened in 2012 in the East Los Angeles community of Boyle Heights in partnership with the i.am.angel Foundation to serve students from Roosevelt High School. College Track Watts launched in 2015 in collaboration with the Wasserman Foundation to serve students from Jordan High School campus. Our sites offer students a safe space to succeed as members of a college-bound community. Together, our Los Angeles sites currently serve 685 students, including college freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Our third center, scheduled to open in Summer 2020, will recruit 75 9th graders each year from Crenshaw High School and Susan Miller Dorsey Senior High School, eventually serving 500 students at a time. Our expansion allows College Track LA to reach a compelling scale and enable us to diversify our student demographics.
