Support in the Postsecondary Process
Alongside helping Fellows figure out what they want to pursue after high school, our model focuses on ensuring Fellows will be able to compete for spots in institutions best aligned to their dreams and needs through intentional focus on GPA growth, test preparation and personal statements.
Pillars of Fellow Success
We have done extensive research to identify a set of social emotional domains that are most critical to success in college and beyond, called the Pillars of Fellow Success. Opportunities to grow and develop in the Pillars of Fellow Success are interwoven throughout OneGoal’s curriculum as Fellows take concrete steps towards researching, applying to, enrolling, and persisting in their postsecondary journeys.
Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
No two students learn the same way. Our curriculum was built around Culturally Relevant Pedagogy, a framework focusing on social justice, equity, and multicultural education. Through this lens and through dedicated professional development of our Program Directors, our curriculum is flexible to each individual classroom while ensuring that the OneGoal experiences and learnings are universal nationwide.
Customized Data Infrastructure
With the foundation of what classroom and student success looks like through Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and the Pillars of Fellow Success, we developed the technology and platforms to provide teachers and students with real-time feedback on their progress towards their goals.
High-Quality College Options
We work closely with postsecondary institutions committed to supporting students of color and first-generation college students, and institutions that have higher-than-average completion rates. Together, we provide cohesive student support, collaborate on new innovations, and develop retention strategies.
