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)

  • Field trips

  • 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.
