THE STATISTICS

SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

Despite the fact that it’s home to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country, college enrollment in Massachusetts varies dramatically based on students’ family income backgrounds.  On average, 58% of low-income students enroll at some type of college while 79% of their higher-income peers enroll. In Massachusetts, there is a real need for a rigorous and proven in-school college access and success model.

BUILDING
THE FOUNDATION

OneGoal began operations in Massachusetts in 2015, establishing partnerships, building infrastructures, and recruiting schools and teachers to execute our three-year model.  We now partner with 10 high schools in the school districts of Boston, Revere, Fall River, New Bedford and Lawrence, and work with a number of postsecondary institutions in order to bring our scalable, teacher-led and proven model to the communities who need it the most.

PAYING IT
FORWARD

OneGoal Program Director, Ainsley Robles, teaches at Lawrence High School as a special education teacher. Ainsley attributes her educational success in part to the role a supportive teacher played in her life. Currently leading one of OneGoal-Massachusetts’ founding cohorts, Ainsley is providing that same support to 25 students, as well as finding opportunities to share the OneGoal curriculum with the entire high school.

BEYOND
BOSTON

While we believe there’s a real need in Boston for OneGoal’s approach, we are also committed to serving students in nearby districts like Lawrence, Lynn, Somerville, and Everett where the number of college access and success programs is limited. Follow the links below to help fuel our expansion.
