Welcome to J.S.T.P.

Charlotte's Premier College Prep Program

New Update

Trip Summary
Our Trip this year will include trips during the week and weekend. Most colleges no longer allow
College tours to be taken during the weekend so we had to get permission from the universities
and ask our students who are current students at our universities to host our tours.

This is the first year we will offer trips on teacher work days. These trips will give our students
the ability to sit in on a college class and see the college the way a student sees them.
This year JSTP will offer students the ability to see 14 Historically Black Colleges and
Universities and at least 12 Predominantly White Universities.

Our Philosophy

  • We believe that higher education is the key to transforming your life.
  • We believe that all students have the ability to be successful.
  • We believe in helping every child achieve their dream by providing families with information, resources and support.
  • We prepare students to make a positive difference, encouraging participation in extracurricular activities and community service.
  • We believe in expanding the horizon of our students by fostering an environment for personal growth and leadership development.
  • We believe in using a collaborative effort to develop student action plans that increase awareness and assist with college preparation.

College Tours

Exposure is key, and perhaps, some of our students have never journeyed outside of their community. In an effort to provide students with a glimpse of the college experience, we offer monthly college tours to students within our program. We also offer opportunities for non-members to attend our college tours based on availability. All interested non-members must place a deposit to reserve a seat on the waiting list. If you are interested in being placed on a waiting list for current and/or future tours, please E-mail us at jstpcollegeprep@gmail.com
