Since opening the College and Career campus in 1997, 109 of our children have graduated from high school.  Of those, 90 (83%) transitioned to the College and Career program.  To date, 31% (21) have obtained college or technical degrees (three of those went on to obtain advanced degrees), seven joined the military and ten are currently working toward a college or technical degree.

In comparison, only 20% of children in foster care attend college and 3% of youth who age out of foster care attain a four-year degree, according to a study by Casey Family Programs.

We are so proud of our ten current College and Career students!
