The Journey Begins Alex lives in the Los Angeles community of Watts and is a student at Jordan High School. He dreams of attending Boston College and majoring in computer science. Alex had a vision for his future and he and his parents knew that if they could access the necessary guidance and support, he could achieve his dreams. In eighth grade, Alex discovered College Track. In the first five months, he could see a transformation in himself. He learned to step out of his comfort zone and increased his college math readiness score by 20 points. Now in his second year of our program, Alex talks to his friends about how proud his parents will be when he receives his college degree, and how successful he will be in his career.
