The EdPrep program consists of a 4-year learning sequence designed to move students closer to college acceptance. We do this through four foundational goals for culturally responsive college and career readiness.
Building a Mental Model

Competency to navigate the University environment with the confidence, mindset and intentionality needed to earn a degree.
What does the research say?
Black and Latino youth disproportionately attend high schools that provide limited access to a guidance counselor or no counselor at all. The American School Counselor Association recommends a student to counselor ratio of 250:1. In schools where there are high Black and Latino student populations, the ratio is 332:1.
Representation of Black and Latino students at the nation’s most selective institutions is a consequence of the lack of access to guidance, preparation, and parental involvement in high school. Our students deserve access to the opportunities, social capital, and financial support that these institutions afford its students. Students who attend these institutions are more likely to graduate, earn more money over the course of their life, and hold influential positions in business and politics. Our communities can be stronger as we increase college attainment across selective institutions.
