More than 250,000 young people have had the trajectory of their lives transformed by College Summit.
The College Summit curriculum is focused on getting students into college. But even after arriving on campus, the work is far from done.
Low-income first-generation students are four times more likely than higher-income second-generation students to drop out of college after their freshman year. 89 percent of low-income first-generation students leave college within six years of enrollment without earning a degree.
The alumni program seeks to ensure that all students who make it to college make it through college and eventually succeed in the workforce.
