Every day, five hundred young people prove it’s possible across Massachusetts.
They prove that all people, regardless of background, past decisions, or challenging life circumstances, can rise to meet high academic expectations. They prove that all teenagers can graduate high school and succeed in college. They excel in their classes by demonstrating incredible grit and determination, often commuting over an hour to get to school, managing pressing family obligations, or working late shifts after a 9-to-4 school day. They fearlessly embrace positive change to develop true scholarship and reach their dreams.
Despite these challenges, our students come to school every day, push through rigorous classes, graduate high school, and excel in college.
