LIFE-CHANGING COMMITMENT

LIFE-CHANGING OUTCOMES

Just 9% of students in low-income communities graduate from college,
compared to a 77% graduation rate for students in high-income areas. This is an injustice.

OUR SOLUTION?

Great teachers
lead our work.

 

OneGoal is uniquely led by excellent teachers (Program Directors) already working in high schools. We support them
with a robust curriculum, technology, training and coaching, and access to our partner colleges.

 

Meet our Program Directors

TEACHER
DRIVEN

We prioritize underserved students.

 

We match each Program Director
with a cohort of 25-30 students
(Fellows) who show potential and commitment to college, but whose
college prospects, without support,
would be limited due to academic
and socio-economic barriers.

 

Meet our Fellows

UNDERSERVED
STUDENTS

Our unique model is
proven to work.

 

Program Directors work with
same group of Fellows from
their junior year of high school
through their first year of college.
Fellows build academic skills,
and learn to anticipate and overcome roadblocks to ensure they
reach college graduation.
