DTS serves highly motivated, low-income, first-generation college-bound students from the greater Los Angeles area. DTS doesn’t enroll only the top-performing students; rather, we consider any underserved student who is interested in going to college and enrolls and retains those willing to put in the work to get there. DTS is an eight-year program spanning the summer before 9th grade through college graduation.
Our high school students attend Alexander Hamilton High School, a Los Angeles Unified School District Title 1 school that enrolls students from all over Los Angeles. Our college students attend colleges all across the country. At capacity, we serve 85 students and their families.
