Staying the Course

The report looks at the changes in college completion rate for Boston Public Schools graduates in the decade since a 2008 report found less than a quarter of BPS Class of 2000 graduates (and only 39% of BPS college enrollees) completed a program within six years. It finds that the six-year college completion rate of graduates who enroll in college during the first year after high school has reached 52%, the highest recorded to date. For students entering the fall immediately after graduation, it’s 55.2% - closing in on a national average of 61.7%.
