Downtown College Prep prepares first-generation students for college success. We believe every student has the potential to succeed.


Since 2000, DCP has been singularly focused on serving students who are the first in their family to go to college. Our program is academically rigorous and requires effort and persistence. Starting students on the path to college in 6th grade is critical to establishing the academic foundation, life skills and grit needed to make it to and through college. By launching students on a proactive path to college in 6th grade, DCP directly confronts the critical middle school achievement gap.


We work alongside families to build a long-lasting and multi-generational vision and commitment to college completion.
