College Track expanded its reach in Northern California to Sacramento in 2014. Almost a decade later, the College Track student center in North Oak Park welcomes approximately 230 scholars from all over Sacramento and its surrounding areas, including Natomas and Elk Grove.
In California’s fast-growing capital, too few of our young people are seizing the opportunity to take part in the area’s growing economy: less than one-third of those with a high school degree seek a bachelor’s. At College Track Sacramento, 98% of our scholars head off to a four-year or two-year college every fall.
A View Inside…
The College Track Sacramento student center is a safe, affirming space for our high schoolers to learn what it means to be “college ready”—academically and socio-emotionally. Filled with colorful art, including Sacramento imagery and symbols, the center reminds our students where they come from and the community that’s there for them as they launch to college and eventually, a meaningful career. Through the Apple Community Education Initiative, Sacramento CT scholars are learning the basics of coding and being introduced to STEAM pathways. And in 2022, with our partners The Sacramento Kings and Dialpad, we opened The Huddle Lab. This high-tech haven of computers, software, and TVs represents a huge step toward closing the digital divide and democratizing the potential of our Sacramento youth.
