The Statistics

Speak For Themselves

Especially in Massachusetts’ knowledge-based economy, a postsecondary credential is necessary for a life of opportunity and choice, and is almost a requirement in order to achieve social mobility. However in Massachusetts, only 18% of students from low-income communities are expected to obtain a college degree within six years of high school graduation, while their peers from high-income families are expected to graduate at rates about four times that. This is not for lack of ambition or talent, but for lack of opportunity and support.

Statewide Impact

In Massachusetts, we partner with 15 high schools in 11 districts across the state to integrate postsecondary planning into the school day. We will continue to pursue state-wide impact by deepening our current partnerships as well as expanding to meet local demand across the Commonwealth.

Our state-of-the-art online platform helps teachers focus on the critical relationships and social-emotional supports our students need, while ensuring they get key information and tools to keep their postsecondary goals on track.

Meet Amanda

“As early as 4th grade, decisions were already being made about whether I was college material or not. Doors opened to me wouldn’t be opened to my peers. I work to ensure all students can choose the postsecondary path of their choice – not a path that was chosen for them.”
