Pilot School Program

A small number of Mississippi high schools have been selected to participate in our new model college access program. This pilot program is designed to empower students to get into college and be successful there.

Launched in 2015, this program was created as a unique partnership to enhance the college-going rate of students through intensive, on-site support of the school’s current efforts to help students graduate and continue their education. Get2College counselors assist the schools’ counselors, teachers, and administrators in giving students the time, tools, and professional advice it takes to strengthen their schoolwork and do everything necessary to enroll in college.

Since its inception, Get2College has submitted student level data to the Mississippi State University Social Science Research Center to evaluate the program. Our goal is to share results of the project with other high schools across the state as the program is continued through the 2020 school year. The comprehensive program begins with students as they enter the 9th grade and follows them through high school and college.
