Preparing high school students for collegiate success!


The College Prep Program (CPP) prepares 6th - 12th grade students for higher education and focuses on academic tutoring, college entrance exam preparation and career counseling. Students meet daily after school to receive individual tutoring in the core subjects and assistance with homework. There is also time for snack and enrichment activities such as debate team, Spanish club, STEM club and recreational basketball.

High school upperclassmen are exposed to college life through campus visits and tours. Career assessment tools are used to provide students and parents with vital information to make well-informed decisions.

Hours of Operation

Participants in CPP meet Monday through Friday, from 3:40 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. following the HISD calendar.
