Our Results

Since 1987, Metas has worked with students to prepare them to be college-ready by their high school graduation.


Metas serves Preschool to 12th grade students in the surrounding communities of Contra Costa College. Most of our students are first generation college students. Through the support of Metas, 99% of our 12th graders have graduated and enrolled in college.


Students are placed into tutoring groups based on their grade and math level. Each group will have access to various tutors to support them with their homework.

In The Last 30 Years...

Metas is proud of the impact that it has had in the community for all these years. A program that arose from concerned educators back in the mid 80's has evolved and flourished into a cornerstone of the community.

From it's early starts working with students at Richmond High School and Helms Middle school, to bringing a small group of students on the college campus, to now serving over 200 students each semester here at Contra Costa College!












In these last 30 years Metas has served over 1500 students, represented students from 100 schools, and has awarded over 300 scholarships. With the continued support of the community we will continue to serve students in the foreseeable future.

We encourage our high school seniors to apply to universities throughout the nation. The most popular colleges amongst our students are UC Berkeley, UC Davis, San Francisco State University and others. We've even had students travel abroad to complete their under graduate studies.
