This article aims to answer two main research questions. First, How do family values and traditions affect eighteen to nineteen year old Latinas’ decision-making process of going or not going to college?, and second, how does the school as an institution affect Latinas’ decision-making process of college enrollment? Theoretical frameworks of Cultural and Social Capital, Symbolic Interactionism, and Critical Race Theory will be used to better understand the data and results. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies were employed in this study.
