Where We Work

San Francisco

For generations, San Francisco has been a land of dreams. From the Gold Rush of the late 1800s to the tech-boom of today, San Francisco has stood for hope and innovation. Nevertheless, the region’s education system doesn’t support all children in making their high hopes a reality. The harsh reality is this: In San Francisco’s Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood, fewer than 1 in 20 students graduate high school eligible for college, which is why College Track San Francisco opened its doors in 2007.

Most of our students live in Bayview Hunters Point, Visitacion Valley/Sunnydale, and the Mission/Excelsior neighborhoods, and attend schools throughout the city. All of our students will work incredibly hard to earn a college degree. To date, we have launched more than 250 students to college and have seen 54 of them through to earning their college degree. We’re so proud of these students, and we are thrilled to support nearly 300 high school students in their pursuit of a college education.
