Our Mission

  • Increase graduation rates

  • Increase college readiness

"Without College Confident, our high-risk population of students would never have had the opportunities to go to college that they have now.

Before College Confident came to our school, we had only about 5 of our 100 seniors actually enrolling into college. After one year with their hands-on team, we have had over 90% of our graduating seniors get accepted into college, enroll and attend.”
