MAKING COLLEGE POSSIBLE FOR ALL STUDENTS AND FUTURE GENERATIONS

OUR VISION

OUR MISSION

College Avenue Compact supports students and their families to be college-ready and achieve guaranteed admission to San Diego State University or other post-secondary opportunities to ensure their success in higher education.

With College Avenue Compact, it has motivated me to make long- and short-term goals for every year. They also widen my options of what college I may want to attend.
