Bridge the Gap College Prep is dedicated to transforming
the lives of Marin City students through education.
The mission of Bridge the Gap College Prep (BTGCP) is to provide Comprehensive Educational Support for Marin City Students with the goal that every Marin City student completes high school and graduates from college.
BTGCP believes that education is the greatest equalizer in closing the achievement gap.
BTGCP instills an expectation of college completion as early as kindergarten, and provides strong academic and emotional support through our After School Extended Learning Day program and One on One Evening Tutoring program.
BTGCP believes in an integrated and holistic approach to supporting a child and a community. Recognizing that academic success can be achieved through a balance of emotional, mental, health and academic support, BTGCP strives to work with and collaborate with other Marin City organizations so that together the collective impact is greater than that of one.
BTGCP believes that Education can change Lives, Education can change a Community.
Bridge the Gap College Prep (BTGCP) was founded in 1995 to increase literacy and math skills of low income, at risk students, living inter-generational poverty in Marin City. Since its inception, BTGCP has served over 300 students at grade levels ranging from Kindergatrn through 12th grade at varying times of their academic life, increasing their literacy, supporting their emotional well being and improving their ability to succeed in school and beyond. 80% of those students served graduated from high school, of that, 60% are attending college, or have graduated.
