Mission Statement

The Mission of Bridge the Gap College Prep (BTGCP) is to provide comprehensive educational and social support for Marin City students 1st - 12th grade through after school and evening tutoring mentoring programs with the goal that the students in our program graduate high school and complete college.


Marin City is a small resilient but underserved community nestled among the more affluent towns of Marin County, CA. BTGCP was founded 15 years ago to close the achievement gap of students by providing 1 to 1 and small group tutoring and mentoring services. The vision of the founders was to change lives and change a community through education. Since its founding, BTGCP has served over over 300 students, of which 80% have graduated high school, compared to a less than 50% high school graduation rate in the rest of Marin City. 60% of our high school graduates are in college or have graduated from college.

Currently, BTGCP offers 3 programs:

* The evening one to one tutoring/mentoring program where students and tutor/mentors are carefully matched to work together for a full academic year for homework and emotional support.

* The NEW Extended Learning Day Program where students 4th through 8 grade meet 2 times a week for 2.5 hours for academic enrichment based on a strong literacy and math program in a college preparatory culture.

Our New High School program serves students in grades 9-12, 4 nights a week. Students are supported by a staff of credentialed teachers as well as one on one tutors one night per week.
