Path to College transforms and connects communities one gifted student at a time—helping those who are willing and ready to help themselves, empowering our community’s best and brightest regardless of their race or financial background.
Path to College has taken on the mission of securing the acceptance of low-income, high-achieving students into top-tier universities, because we believe no intelligent and motivated student should lower their academic ambitions because of lack of funds or guidance.

Because low-income student enrollment in higher-education has decreased 10% in the last ten years
Because SAT scores, the gateway to admissions and scholarships, rise in direct proportion to family income brackets
