October is Success Boston College Month!

What is College Month?

Success Boston College Month is an annual effort each October to create awareness about college affordability, college admissions, and the types of degrees and careers that go along with a college education. This is the 12th year of College Month. During the time since College Month began, Success Boston’s partners have worked together to increase the numbers of Boston Public Schools students who apply for, attend, and successfully complete college. Today the six-year college completion rate stands at just over 50% for BPS graduates. Please help us continue our mission of making college accessible to every Boston Public Schools student!
