Program Description:
CollegeCommunityCareer currently partners with area five high schools (Spring Woods, Westchester Academy for International Studies and Northbrook High School in Spring Branch ISD; Benjamin Davis High School in Aldine ISD and Willowridge High School in Fort Bend ISD) working with students beginning in their sophomore year until they have completed a bachelor’s degree. CollegeCommunityCareer‘s curriculum is based on the program’s 4 pillars, and provides organized instruction through 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. With the 4 Pillars of CollegeCommunityCareer, we seek to develop the whole student with the vision of developing an employable civically-minded, college graduate. CollegeCommunityCareer holds afterschool classes on the partnering site to ensure that students successfully engage in the program. CollegeCommunityCareer organizes mid-year workshops and summer sessions ranging from ACT/SAT preparation to essay writing to touring colleges in an effort to reinforce topics discussed in class ensuring students have continuous learning opportunities. College students meet once a semester during winter and summer breaks.

Help low income, first generation high school students become civically minded, college graduates. Our goal is for students to find a college that fits them academically, socially and financially so they can graduate from college within 12 semesters and find a job upon graduation.
