American Honors, a program administered by D.C. edtech firm Quad Learning, announced Tuesday it had expanded its network to over 50 colleges and universities in the U.S.

“We believe that an exceptional undergraduate education does not have to be so expensive that it drives students and families into debt,” said American Honors’s Chief Academic Officer David Finegold in a press release.

The program connects community college students with mentors and instructors, complementing their studies to help them get admitted into four-year institutions.

Participating schools now include Georgetown UniversityGeorge Washington UniversityBrandeis UniversitySwarthmore College and Duke University.

“We’re very aware that there are many talented community college students, including first-generation and low income students, that are ready to pursue a world-class education and succeed in the most rigorous and challenging academic environments,” Christoph Guttentag, Duke’s dean of undergraduate admissions, said in the release.

The American Honors program uses a tool called Quad, a platform it developed in-house that facilitates communication between students and their advisers on the ground. It has also developed a mobile app to help fit the program into students’ complicated schedules.
