Results That Speak For Themselves
We support our scholars to excel, raise the bar, and exceed expectations. By focusing on a strong, foundational preparation in mathematics, reading, and computer science, our scholars are ready for college and beyond.
College matriculation is the number of high school graduates who are accepted to a two or four year post secondary institution and actually begin classes in the fall following graduation. Many low-income students and students of color suffer from summer melt, which is defined as students who plan to go to college after high school graduation but do not actually enroll in any post secondary institutions. Our graduates are more likely to successfully start their freshman year of post secondary education on time.
