Strategic Plan 2017-2022

In 2017, we celebrated our 10th anniversary and completed a five year strategic plan. Our comprehensive plan will greatly enhance our ability as an organization to address the needs of the community and have a greater impact on our students and families. 

Our Strategic Plan has three core priorities:

  • Launch a College Student Support Program to help ensure our alumni graduate from college in four years, with strong GPAs and career ready.

  • Refine our model and re-write our curriculum to capture best practice thinking for college readiness and maximized efficiency.

  • Double the College Bound Program by 2022.
