CollegeTracks changes lives and communities by giving Montgomery County’s low-income, first-generation-to-college students the chance to go to colleges where they can succeed with enough financial aid and continued support to help them graduate.
The College Access Program
Our Access Program helps junior and senior high school students understand their college and career options, identify colleges that fit each student and complete the critical milestones of the college admissions process. CollegeTracks also engages parents, advises on college selections decisions, and provides hands-on help with financial aid and scholarship applications to help students avoid onerous debt.
