Several factors influence academic performance and educational attainment of Latino youth. Latino youth encounter social, informational and financial barriers to educational attainment. Barriers include educational inequities, poverty, language, immigration, parent factors and insufficient resources to navigate the education system. A thorough literature review was conducted, in order to understand the needs ofLatino youth in the educational system and interventions which improve academic performance and educational attainment. Research conducted identified college preparation programs implemented in the school setting as an effective means to promote academic success and higher education attainment. The purpose of this project was to develop funding grant application for a college preparation program for Anaheim High School. The goal of this program is to improve the academic performance and increase the number of Latino students pursuing a higher education. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
