Momentum Pathways

CCA’s Momentum Pathways Scale Project is an initiative focused on boosting college attainment in states by developing clear pathways amongst participating institutions and implementing evidence-based strategies that help students meet key, first-year benchmarks. As a participating state, Colorado is committed to taking bold action to improve graduation rates and eliminate achievement gaps.

The effort leverages CCA’s Game Changers, data-driven interventions designed to restructure systems, improve student outcomes and eliminate achievement gaps. The Momentum Pathways Scale Project creates a three-year implementation timeline and includes significant structured implementation support from CCA staff and content experts.
