Our Goal

Our goal is to ensure that ALL of our students, regardless of athletic skill, get accepted by a college of their choice, and that ALL of our students qualify for whatever NCAA scholarships they may be offered.

We do this through a dedicated group of volunteers who treat each student as if they were their own child, giving the student time and effort that overwhelmed high school guidance offices simply cannot.
Our Impact

Woodlands Varsity Football Coach Mike Meade recently said:

“My kids know when people really care, and when they are just showing up. These people really care, and the kids pick up on that. Destination:College is the reason for my own program’s success both athletically and academically. Last year was our first winning season at Woodlands in many years, and this year is the first time my seniors are getting noticed by college coaches. The genuine interest these volunteers show and their personal attention to my kids has raised the bar for sports and academics.”

One student, who saw his SAT scores go up 100 points in both critical reading and math, making him eligible for both Division I and Division II scholarships, said it best :

“You changed my life. Now I can go to college.”
