One of a

Kind Program

We partner with high schools in low-income communities to ensure college and postsecondary planning, preparation, and support aren’t treated as extracurricular activities, but as integral components of the high school experience for all students.

The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for OneGoal to fulfill our promise to students. We have responded by providing a more flexible, tech-enabled solution that addresses the institutional and system-level barriers to students achieving postsecondary success.

Our Differentiators

We Bridge High School + College

A three-year model, OneGoal starts as a credit-bearing class during students’ junior and senior year of high school. OneGoal Program Directors (i.e., school-based educators) then bridge the transition from high school to a Fellow’s chosen postsecondary path by continuing individualized support for a full year after high school.

Our Student Profile is Unique

We prioritize students who have postsecondary ambitions, but who are often overlooked by other programs. Our cohorts have an average 2.7 GPA (or 82.5%) and a 840 SAT score when they begin. 96% of OneGoal Fellows identify as people of color and 91% are eligible for free/reduced lunch.

We Leverage Educator Expertise

Each OneGoal teacher (Program Director) and cohort is supported by OneGoal staff who provide ongoing coaching and training. Program Directors contextualize lessons and help students identify paths to success, build resilience while navigating inequitable systems, and enroll in their choice of postsecondary institution.

Tech-Enabled and Flexible Model

We provide a flexible model that can be delivered in-person, online, or through a hybrid structure. Technology also provides insights on individual and class performance, as well as helps students find their top match college or postsecondary program and track progress once they enroll, to name a few examples.

Culturally Relevant Teaching

Grounded in Culturally Relevant Pedagogy, a framework focusing on social justice, equity, and multicultural education, our curriculum and training creates an environment where Fellows grow academically and identify postsecondary paths aligned to their personal aspirations.

Our People

Our work would be nothing without the school leaders who open their doors to us, the educators who deliver our model and the students who come eager to learn and work towards their goals.
