About Us

College Track is a national education nonprofit that empowers students from underserved communities to reach their dream of a college degree. Our mission is to close the achievement gap and create college-going cultures for students who are historically and currently underrepresented in higher education. We work closely with our students with after-school programming and college coaching from the summer before ninth grade through college graduation. We currently serve nearly 1,400 high school and college students in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, New Orleans, Aurora, CO, and Los Angeles. Among those students, 295 are from Bayview Hunters Point. We have demonstrated a tremendous record of success. One hundred percent of our seniors graduate high school. Ninety percent are admitted to a four-year college, with fifty-five percent graduating within six years, more than twice the national average for low-income students. Eighty-five percent of our students will be the first person in their family to earn a college degree.
