Together, the Boston Foundation, the Boston Public Schools (BPS), the City of Boston, 37 area institutions of higher education and local nonprofit partners are working to double the college completion rate for students from the BPS. To date, over 5,000 students have participated in Success Boston coaching.
This report, conducted by the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute for Success Boston, finds that Boston students have access to unprecedented levels of support for getting into and persisting in college, but that the effectiveness of those supports would be increased by improved coordination and sharing among schools, community organizations and higher education institutions.
A new Success Boston report from the Boston Private Industry Council about the college enrollment and completion experiences of high school graduates of the Boston Public Schools was released at a Boston Foundation forum on April 11, 2018. The report includes an updated six-year college completion rate for the BPS Class of 2011, as well as new analyses on the types of degrees they earned and the fields of study they selected.Watch a video of the forum
