Although low-income students are less likely to attend and graduate from college than those from higher-income high schools, college graduates earn 66% more and are far less likely to face unemployment.
Graduate Great is an educational collaboration that brings local private and charter schools together to create clear and unobstructed paths to graduation and higher education for every student, especially those from low-income families. By working collectively from preschool through high school, partner schools help students build the confidence, competence and character necessary to succeed beyond high school and in life. As graduates return to their communities with advanced skills and a service mindset, they will continue to transform our communities for good.
Current Graduate Great partners include:
Graduate Great results suggest that when local schools work together from preschool through high school, students may achieve greater academic and long-term success. Additionally, the program is increasing access to a college preparatory education for more students from limited economic means.
