College Track is replicating its center-based college pathway program in Boyle Heights.  The after-school program started in the fall of 2012 with 60 freshmen from Roosevelt High School and will grow to 240 students in grades 9-12 over the next three years.  The program works with students from the summer before high school through college graduation, providing them with academic and social-emotional support, enrichment activities, and guidance in applying to college, securing financial aid and connecting with campus resources.  By 2016, at least 75% of the first cohort of Boyle Heights’ students will have completed the high school portion of the program.  Of these, 90% will enroll in a four-year college and by 2022, 75% will have graduated from college.
