CollegeMapper is a step-by-step process designed to help high school students navigate the college application process. It lays out all the necessary steps and allows students to create a personalized plan that keeps them on track. Minds Matter mentors work with their mentees to set up an account and create a three-year plan to ensure they have the strongest college application possible by the time they apply.

Khan Academy offers “a free world-class education for anyone anywhere”: an extensive video library, interactive challenges, and assessments accessible from any computer connected to the web. Minds Matter uses Khan Academy’s resources in our morning Math Matters and test prep sessions to provide a customized educational experience for our mentees, to spot areas for improvement, and to track their progress.
