College and Career Pathways

Every student deserves a quality education, yet only 7 percent of high school students in historically low-performing schools meet or exceed the benchmark for college readiness.

Our Solution

We convene schools, community members, and business leaders to integrate work-based learning experiences and rigorous academics to put power behind students’ diplomas. Using the Linked Learning approach we expose students to previously unimagined college and career opportunities by turning their education into a personally relevant, engaging experience.
