Conventional wisdom tends to ask, "where can we send our students to college?" We ask, "where and how can we best support them through college?"

In our Pre-College program, students learn how to think, feel, and act like successful college students in the first place. We help them enroll into CCP, put together an academic, financial, and social College Success Plan, and practice firsthand the soft skills necessary to navigate college's social and academic contexts, such as going to professors’ office hours, balancing schedules, and managing financial aid.

Once they start CCP, students are welcomed into Philly College Team (PCT), in which they are supported by upperclassmen and a network of mentors. Team members study and eat communal dinners together, continuously refine and update their College Success Plans and graduation roadmaps, take part in monthly academic workshops, and are fully supported until their commencement day.

While students are completing college, we guarantee their future success through career-based resume and skill-building workshops and by setting them up with shadowing, internship, and employment opportunities across Philadelphia. If they wish to continue their education, we help them smoothly transfer to an affordable four-year college, where they will already be halfway to a bachelors degree.
