What is CollegeTrek?
College preparation should not wait for high school. The Wooten Center starts at grade 3 to prepare students to adopt skills needed to complete their journey to higher education.
CollegeTrek is a tuition-free afterschool program providing:
Quarterly assessments and tutoring in math and language arts
Daily homework assistance
Monthly College and Career Day with guest mentors and college plans
STEM classes (weekly robotics, etc.)
World languages and culture
Visual and performing arts
Teen Helper internships
SAT-prep and college advisement
Sports and recreation (basketball, etc.)
Life Skills and Leadership Development (Juvenile Justice Jeopardy, Teen Job Shop, Teen Talk, Youth and Junior Councils)
Hot and nutritious snacks
The Wooten Center works in partnership with parents, schools and community partners to help our students achieve good citizenship and academic excellence. All activities are based on our STEP Tutorial Model to promote critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creative expression--our four college readiness skills.
