Why We Do This Work
Historically in Los Angeles County, just 12% of students who have come through the K-12 system have gone on to earn a college degree. And yet research shows that economic outcomes, health outcomes, and social outcomes for individuals with four-year college degrees are significantly stronger than for non-degree earners. Collegiate’s team of educational professionals commits fiercely to one audacious goal: the promise that every single one of our scholars gets the excellent education they deserve in order to be ready for success at the four-year college of their choice.
