Evaluating our Pilot School Program

The Woodward Hines Education Foundation and the Social Science Research Center at Mississippi State University are working together to evaluate the Get2College Pilot School Program, which seeks to increase the number of students getting to college in Mississippi. In order to increase the numbers of students going to, persisting and completing college, the Pilot School Program, which is currently being implemented in eight high schools across Mississippi, uses nationally identified best practices and benchmarks from the National College Access Network (NCAN). Get2College works with administrators, counselors, teachers, students, and parents through on-site support, workshops, special events, and individual counseling.
