CollegeTracks changes lives by giving low-income, first-generation-to-college students the chance to go to college with enough financial aid and continuing support to help them attain the degrees they seek.
Too many smart, motivated MCPS students don’t go to college, or don’t go to the college where they are most likely to succeed, simply because they don’t know how to apply and get financial aid.
CollegeTracks helps kids who know no adult with enough experience in the American higher education system to guide them through the complicated admission and financial aid process.
Full-time CollegeTracks staff and volunteers work individually with students and families at Wheaton and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High Schools to advise and support them through the milestone activities required to get admitted to college, find enough financial aid to attend, enroll, persist and graduate.
Since 2003, CollegeTracks served more than 2300 students. In 2013-14, almost 600 junior and senior high school students received College Admissions and Financial Aid Advising services and 185 college students received College Success Advising.
