• Encouraging Courageous Leadership

How we approach our Mission

Identifying potential and developing leaders in under-represented populations remains a critical challenge in our society. The mission of Pathways to College is to meet this need by expanding the pipeline to college in selected under-served communities.

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.

  • Creating a nationwide, networked community of high-achieving primarily minority children.

  • Assisting these students, with their families, to become knowledgeable, attractive college applicants, students and successful graduates.

  • Partnering with colleges, schools and communities for the ongoing and consistent encouragement and support of these aspiring and able children.

  • Building on the examples our students and teachers set, helping foster and support a school-wide cultural change that emphasizes academic and career achievement.
