Spring before OneGoal Starts

We collaborate directly with school leaders to:

  • Recruit students who would most benefit from OneGoal
  • Recruit teachers who will actively engage with the college-going process and best serve as a resource for students
  • Set up the OneGoal class, supporting logistics such as student schedules, access to technology, and more

What we look for in program directors


OneGoal Year 1 + Year 2

As your Fellows take the OneGoal class as juniors and then seniors, OneGoal will:

  • Work with school leaders, teachers and students to individualize our model and meet your school’s specific needs
  • Collect and share data on student progress, such as grade improvements
  • Support Program Directors, especially in the summer when daily access to Fellows is limited

Learn about our Model


OneGoal Year 3

While Fellows are in their first year of college, OneGoal continues to partner with school leaders to:

  • Ensure that the Program Director still has a full class period to dedicate to OneGoal Y3 work and touch points with students
  • Provide opportunities for professional development to Program Directors
  • Directly support to students most at risk for not persisting in college

“OneGoal is one of the most beneficial partners a high school can have. They have one focus: getting our students into college, making sure once they get there they feel great about where they are, that they are supported, and that they can succeed. As a school principal it’s essential to have a partner that has that one focus and can help us think about it.”
