OUR APPROACH TO SUCCESS

Identifying potential and developing leaders in under-represented populations remains a critical challenge in our society.

Our Goals

A key way to address this challenge – and the challenge of overall school performance – is strengthening students’ ability to win admission to and succeed in the best possible colleges, given their interests and abilities.

School-Based Scholars Program
  • Operates after school in partner schools and communities.
  • Led by four of the most effective teachers in each participating school.
  • Targets up to 100 Scholars in grades 9-12.
  • Schoolwide impact is attained through building a college-going culture and providing opportunities for schoolwide activities.
National Scholars Program
  • Accommodates Scholars who prefer the flexibility of a virtual program, empowering them to balance school, work and college preparatory pursuits.
  • Operates after school as a virtual, national community of learners.
  • Led by veteran Pathways to College program teachers.
  • Currently open to applicants in central and eastern time zones
