Pathways to College helps students of color develop the critical thinking skills and habits of mind for college admission and success. The program selects high school Scholars based on potential, not necessarily proven performance.

During the event, Griffin explained unique strategies for identifying student potential, the values shared by students and staff, how the program nurtures student talent, program outcomes, and student and teacher perceptions.
