To Our Partners

THANK YOU to our school and organizational partners who nominated over 100 high school seniors during our inaugural year launching the College Transition Program! We welcomed 26 students to our pilot class in the summer of 2020.



Our Pilot Class 2020

96% of CTP students will be first-generation college graduates.

In our first year, we were often asked who we were looking to serve. As a pilot program, we wanted to keep that as open as possible knowing that we were focused on helping students prepare for that first year of college transition—a frequent barrier for low-income and first-generation students of color.

Boston Collegiate Charter
Boston International
Boston Latin Academy
Boston Prep Charter
Brighton HS
Brooke Charter
Cambridge Rindge & Latin
Cathedral HS
