College Track (CT) is a college completion program that equips students confronting systemic barriers to earn a bachelor’s degree in pursuit of a life of opportunity, choice, and power. Our vision is for all students in our nation to have the opportunity to earn a college degree. College Track Crenshaw District is the newest of twelve sites from across the country serving students from Crenshaw High School, Dorsey High School, and LA Promise Charter High School.
From the summer before ninth grade through college graduation, our 10-year program
removes 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.
At College Track, our values drive the way we do our work, and we look for individuals who share our passion. We blend an entrepreneurial spirit with our nonprofit roots, cultivating a dynamic culture where everyone's contributions are valued and encouraged.
