Many low-income students with the desire to go to college lack access to the support they need to succeed. CPE’s model for success works because we know what it takes to overcome the particular challenges low-income (often first-generation-to-college) students face in achieving the dream of a college education and a brighter future.
In the next 10 years, 67% of all new high growth, high-wage jobs will require a college degree, and earning potential is nearly double, on average, for college graduates vs. non-college graduates.
- 70% of all CPE students complete the program and graduate from high school
- 99% of CPE high school graduates enroll in college
- 73% of those CPE students enrolled in college successfully graduate
See how our results compare regionally and nationally, below. Our impact is clear:
Nationally 8% of low-income students earn a college degree compared to 82% of high-income students. CPE levels the playing field through a customized approach that supports each student throughout all four years of high school by filling the key gaps that school, family, and community simply cannot.
