Our commitment to students is unbowed

Dear College Track community,

As our nation takes unprecedented action to protect the life and wellness of our families, friends, and society-at-large, College Track is taking all necessary precautions to keep our students safe and healthy. In accordance with the recommendations from federal and local health agencies, state leaders, and partner school districts, our College Track centers and regional offices are closed through at least April 7th, but continue to offer vital services. 

To ensure the least amount of disruption for our students and families, our staff will deliver daily online programming, including test preparation, college counseling, financial aid resources, and social-emotional wellness support. For our college students, we will continue remote advising and make emergency funds available to those who are unable to return home while campuses are closed. Whatever our students need, College Track is available to support, day or night.

In this moment of uncertainty, I am confident that we will rise in the face of this challenge to protect and advocate for our most vulnerable communities. A national crisis of this magnitude only reinforces our mission to ensure that everyone, regardless of their household income, race, or immigration status, has the opportunity to earn a higher education, achieve professional success, and experience lifelong wellness. 

Thank you for your commitment to our students’ health, safety, and education. If you’re looking for ways to support students and families in this moment, here is a list of resources from our partners at the Emerson Collective and National Geographic

Once the tide has turned on the spread of COVID-19, I look forward to reuniting with you to meet our goal of serving 5,000 students annually, and 1,400 alumni by 2024. Together, we are far more powerful than we realize.

Until then, I wish you and your family good health and well-being.
