The numbers speak for themselves.
98% of our Scholars graduate from high school compared to a 65% average graduation rate in the schools we serve.
69% of our Scholars graduate from college with two or four year degrees. This compares to 39.7% degree attainment for the same demographic nationally.
Since 1996, we have helped more than 225 local Scholars to earn their college degrees. Most of our students are the first in their families to go to college.
Our Scholars have gone on to become teachers, scientists, engineers, nurses, accountants and community leaders.
