Open doors for more Scholars in under-resourced communities

Too many lack access, but are so full of potential

FOR 20 YEARS, Pathways to College has been guiding African American and other high school students of color to success in college and in life. Our research-based after-school program helps "Scholars" develop the skills and habits of mind that research indicates are critical to academic and career success.

While just 30% of students enter Pathways identified as "high achieving," fully 100% of our graduates earn college acceptance, and 90% enter college. Pathways works!
