2015 College Decisions

Back to School. It’s just around the corner. For Summer Search’s graduating high school class of 2015, Back to School is a time to take that new, next step forward… onto a college campus.

Of the 484 graduating seniors, 446 are planning to continue on to college. That’s a 92% matriculation rate* for our Summer Searchers, compared to a rate of just 51% for their low income peers nationally.*

Here’s a snapshot of where our students are headed in the fall:
