College Counseling

School to College.

The School-to-College (STC) program is currently located at the The Academy - San Francisco @ McAteer HS.

The main objective of the STC program is to outreach to first generation, underrepresented and disenfranchised student populations and their communities, and provide them with a school community, in addition to on and off campus resources. 

Our values consists of nurturing the feeling of the unknown that is usually felt by first-generation students when the conversation of college is presented to them and empowering students to pursue their dreams towards higher education. 

STC provides support in: assistance with the college application process, assistance with applying for financial aid and scholarships, facilitate college campus tours, facilitate SAT/ACT math prep sessions, and provide workshops that represent the communities needs.
