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 continuing individualized support 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.
What it means to be a Fellow →
Our curriculum is delivered through teachers who hold a deep understanding of students’ environments. We train and coach these teachers (Program Directors) to contextualize lessons and help students identify their vision of success, build resilience needed to navigate inequitable systems, and find and enroll in their choice of postsecondary institution.

Our Model is Flexible
Leveraging technology, we provide a flexible model that can be delivered in-person, online or through a hybrid structure. The modular organization of the curriculum also allows students to set their own pace and track progress, freeing educators to offer differentiated coaching and supports.
We Use Culturally
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 identify postsecondary paths aligned to their personal aspirations.
