How Works

The team begins working with DC students in middle school to help them prepare for the transition to DC College Preparatory, DC Legacy College Preparatory, and other high-performing high schools. Throughout high school, remains connected with our alumni to offer academic, college placement, & career readiness programming. Once our alumni graduate from high school, continues to support and collaborate with them on their path toward college completion or self-sustaining careers.

"It's not about going to a prestigious institution, or about going somewhere that feels comfortable to you; but more so about joining a community that you can positively influence and contribute to. That's where you should choose."

Christian Sturdivant, DC College Preparatory '17
