College Success

At Phoenix, college success is not just an expectation – it is a reality.

At Phoenix, college success is not just an expectation – it is a reality.

Since our inception ten years ago, Phoenix schools have graduated over 200 students, each overcoming significant challenges along their paths to college success. The Phoenix mission does not stop with a high school diploma however; we measure our success by our graduates’ ability to enter and persist in college.
