Pre-College Programs

Since 1989, Georgetown’s Pre-College programs have been committed, through its Jesuit and Catholic traditions and values, to helping prepare men and women for lives of service to others. Our engagement in the District, as well as other communities, nationally and internationally, is motivated by this commitment, and this commitment has called us to be a leader in the conversation around college access and success locally and nationally. 

Housed through the Center for Multicultural Equity and Access, Pre-College programs are holistic outreach programs that provide comprehensive and intensive academic, psychosocial, and family support to District of Columbia public middle and high school students to empower them to graduate from high school and succeed in college.  

Students self-select into the program where they embark upon their college readiness journeys as Pre-College Scholars. Motivated by our mission, “inspiring hope and interest in higher education,” Pre-College Programs strives not only to educate in the academic sense but also to instill confidence in and to build a desire for education in students by providing highly enriching experiences.

Pre-College Programs is comprised of three transformative programs: Kids2College (K2C), College Exposure/Dual Enrollment and the Institute for College Preparation.
