Mission Statement

Path to College has taken on the mission of securing the acceptance of low-income, high-achieving students into top-tier universities, because we believe no intelligent and motivated student should lower their academic ambitions because of lack of funds or guidance.

Description

Our program is an elite academic fellowship that stands upon the pillars of our three core values: ENRICH, ACHIEVE, and SERVE.

We ENRICH our students' academic growth by providing them with once-in-a-lifetime career exploration opportunities. They meet with community leaders, learn about the issues facing their community, attend field trips, and participate in workshops to give them practical skills and interdisciplinary experience.

We help our students ACHIEVE by matching them with a committed mentor who works with them one-on-one to complete the college application process. We also provide SAT tutoring after school as part of our fellowship. Our goal is to help each one of our fellows receive full-scholarship offers to the selective universities of their dreams.

Lastly, we encourage them to take what they learn and find a way to SERVE their community. With the core belief that in order to be a happy and fulfilled individual you must give back, we ask our students to take what they have learned and organize and implement a philanthropic project that seeks to address one of the community challenges they have been exposed to, thereby giving them leadership experience and instilling them with a sense of civic duty.
