About CARS Centers
Title V Grant

Project Higher Education Learning Pathways (Project HELP) offers a College Partnership Program designed to keep education within reach for Hispanic, low-income, and other underserved students within the Golden Crescent Region of South Texas.  As a result of Project HELP, CARS Centers were formed in partnering high schools. 

CARS Centers are VC-operated College Access Resources and Success (CARS) Centers. CARS Centers provide students with college entrance testing, career exploration, and other assessments which help establish and enhance their academic skills.  Non-academic skills such as time management, effective note-taking, study skills, and test taking skills are also addressed.  CARS Centers provide information on colleges, universities, and vocational/trade schools. Additionally, a VC pre-college advisor is available in the CARS Center to assist student throughout the school year.  Students have access to computers so that they may explore other information on colleges/universities, careers, scholarships, and financial aid.  Parents are always welcome to visit the CARS Centers.

The emphasis of this project component is to help students transition successfully from high school to college.
