In the fall of 2019, we completed our first ever survey of high school flagship program alumni who have earned a bachelor’s degree. The goal of the survey was to provide insight into the well-being of graduates five and 10 years after graduation. The survey asked a broad range of questions, encompassing topics such as education, finances, employment, family life and civic engagement. The findings show that our graduates are thriving.
In 2018-19 we served over 22,000 students across the country, with plans to serve even more each year through our innovative Catalyze program.
Since our founding nearly 20 years ago, we have continuously tested our approach to ensure we are making the strongest possible impact. In 2018, the success of our coaching model was confirmed in a rigorous three-year study with the Hope Lab. The findings show students in our program are 20 percent more likely to enroll in college.
98% of our students are admitted to college.
College Possible students have an average increase of 17% on their ACT/SAT scores.
79% of our students persist from their first to second year of college, an important success milestone.
