Mission: Empower students from under-served communities to graduate from college. College Track recruits students from under-served communities and works continuously with them from the summer before ninth grade through college graduation. Our ten-year program removes the barriers that prevent students from earning their college degree by providing them with comprehensive academic support, leadership training, financial and college advising, and scholarships. We teach our students the skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond.
Partnering with’s Foundation, The California Endowment, and the Wasserman Foundation, College Track will focus on providing students the resources they need to get into and graduate from college. College Track is teaching students skills in arts and digital media while guiding students toward the emerging careers of tomorrow in science, technology, engineering, and math. The students of Boyle Heights are leading a community where college is the expectation, not the exception.
Upward Bound:

Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.


Telacu Talent Search:

The Talent Search Program identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education.

The Program provides students’ academic, career, and financial counseling to empower them to graduate from high school, enroll in and complete post secondary education. The goal of Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in and complete post secondary education.


Support Programs


MSTMA has two on going Intervention programs through out the year. MSTMA has a credit recovery program which allows students to make up any missing class during the school day or after-school. This class is supervised by an MSTMA teacher of the subject matter in which the student is missing the credit, in order for the student to receive additional 1:1 support. MSTMA also runs a week long Math Intervention program 3 times a year, Thanksgiving break, 1st week of Winter Break and Spring Break.


Our Advanced Placement (AP) teachers also provide after-school or Saturday tutoring for their respective AP courses. Our  AP teachers also participate in the UCLA AP readiness program where once a month MSTMA students take classes on UCLA campus. Many of our teachers are committed to  out of class support in order for our students to become successful all around students.
