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:
“Other” includes military, one-year post-secondary and vocational / technical programs.

Plus, Summer Search will be represented in five Ivy League schools: Brown, Penn, Columbia, Princeton and Yale!
We wish the best of luck to our new college freshman class, and to all our Summer Searchers going back to school this fall!
