Academic Mentoring

Cal-SOAP provides in-class academic mentoring at elementary, middle schools, and high schools. Our staff are paired with a credentialed teacher in order to provide extra assistance for students in the class. Ranging from intervention groups to one-on-one academic mentoring.

I’m Going to College

Elementary school and a local college/university become partners to educate teachers, students, and parents  to raise college awareness. The program culminates of a 6-week curriculum and a partnered college campus tour (UC, CSU, Community College, and Private Universities).

Parent Workshops

South County Cal-SOAP offers various morning and evening workshops to parents of K-12 students throughout the academic year at their child's school site. Topics include financial aid awareness, hands-on FAFSA/CADAA application completion/submission, how to navigate the college application process, and many more.

College Tours

Every year, South County Cal-SOAP offers college tours for students in our program. Often times, these tours are the determining factors when students are choosing what colleges they want to apply to. Most students who visit a campus with Cal-SOAP are seeing a university for the first time in their lives.

Community Events

Annual Orientation

We will be offering college readiness workshops for K-12th parents and students. Workshops will include financial aid planning and assistance, college requirements, career exploration, and much more!

College Fairs

Each academic year students have the opportunity to attend a Cal-SOAP-sponsored College Fair. College Fairs are free to students and their parents and provide the opportunity to interact directly with representatives from over 50 colleges and universities.


Our annual fundraiser is a joint celebration with educators who aim to improve the system with equity at the forefront of each decision they make, and for the students who work tirelessly to open doors that have been previously locked to the generations before them.
