Students from low-income communities—the vast majority of whom are students of color—face enormous systemic barriers to attend and complete college. This lack of opportunity is one of the nation’s greatest injustices, and it has only widened over the past few decades. Despite millions invested, only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a postsecondary degree compared to 67% of their peers in high income communities. To truly move the needle for all low-income students, not just those at the very top of their class, a scalable, in-school solution is needed.
OneGoal offers that solution at a low cost and makes graduation a reality for all students. OneGoal collaborates closely with public schools in low-income communities, providing teachers with a robust curriculum, technology, training and coaching to implement its three-year model with a group of 25 students (Fellows) per cohort. Teachers support the same group of Fellows beginning in their junior year of high school and bridge the gap through their first year of their postsecondary education.See more
