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. Then, Program Directors bridge the transition from high school to Fellow’s chosen postsecondary path by providing one-on-one intensive coaching remotely for a full year after high school graduation.

Our Student Profile is Unique
We prioritize students who have potential and postsecondary ambitions, but who are often overlooked by other programs. Our cohorts have an average 2.8 GPA (or 81%) and a 840 SAT score when they begin. 96% of OneGoal Fellows identify as people of color and 91% are free/reduced lunch eligible.

We Are Teacher-Led
We recognize and celebrate educators’ expertise by training and coaching teachers from within their own schools to teach our curriculum. These OneGoal Program Directors help students identify their vision of success, build the mindsets and resilience they’ll need to navigate inequitable systems, and find and successfully enroll in their choice of postsecondary institution.

We Use Culturally Relevant Teaching
We focus on ensuring Fellows make academic gains to increase their access to quality colleges, while grounding our teaching and approach in Culturally Relevant Pedagogy. Fellows explore, reflect on and affirm their individual identities in order to build critical consciousness and identity postsecondary paths aligned to their personal aspirations.
