Our "Why?"

We Believe

  • All young people, regardless of zip code, are entitled to a quality education, and a chance to discover their passions and share their talents with the world.
  • Post-secondary education is essential to upward economic mobility.
  • Readiness for, access to, and persistence in college are integral to degree attainment.
