Who We Are
EAOP partners with schools, districts, community organizations and families to empower underserved students and prepare them for college and career success.
The UC Berkeley Early Academic Outreach Program is committed to closing the opportunity gap and increasing access to higher education for underserved students, families and communities.
The Early Academic Outreach Program has partnered with schools, districts, community organizations and families in the Bay Area for over 30 years. EAOP serves over 3,000 students from schools in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco and Solano counties. Our staff provides academic advising and course planning; college and financial aid information; scholarship application assistance; SAT Reasoning Test preparation; and academic enrichment opportunities for students and their families. Typically, students apply to EAOP in the spring of ninth grade. To be eligible, students must attend an EAOP partner school and be enrolled in, or have completed Algebra. Priority enrollement is given to students from low-income families and/or students who will be the first in their family to go to college. EAOP takes pride in its role in creating a community of young scholars. 90 percent of our students go onto higher education immediately following high school.
