Crocker students at Sacramento State

Fifth graders at Crocker-Riverside Elementary School visited Sacramento State recently, a field trip coordinated through the Sacramento Pathways to Success partnership.

“All of our fifth graders attended, loved the tour of campus and the women’s soccer game afterwards, which the Hornets won,” says Principal Daniel McCord. “Our fifth graders are now discussing the tour with their parents and guardians and signing pledges committing themselves to attend college when that time comes.”

Sacramento Pathways to Success is a partnership between Sacramento City Unified School District, Sacramento City College and Sacramento State to provide Sacramento students and their families a clearer, simpler road to college and career success.

According to Pathways statistics, 70 percent of SCUSD students attend a local college.The intent of Pathways to Success is to provide all students with a seamless local educational pathway through college to career.

Fifth grade visits to Sac State help build college-going cultures at elementary schools.
