To continue to significantly increase opportunities for artistically talented students, at program sites in Newark, to fulfill their artistic promise.
Identifying potential and developing leaders in under-represented populations remains a critical challenge in our society. A key way to address this challenge -- and the challenge of overall school performance -- is strengthening students' ability to win admission to and succeed in the best possible colleges, given their interests and abilities.
The mission of Pathways to College is to meet this need by expanding the pipeline to college in selected under-served communities, by:
1. Creating a nationwide, networked community of high-achieving primarily minority children.
2. Assisting these students, with their families, to become knowledgeable, attractive college applicants, students and successful graduates.
3. Partnering with colleges, schools and communities for the ongoing and consistent encouragement and support of these aspiring and able children.
4. Building on the examples our students and teachers set, helping foster and support a school-wide cultural change that emphasizes academic and career achievement.
