Thanks to a strong community of friends like you, there are now 225 CV college grads, and we’ll surpass 300 in the next 18 months! Together, we’ve built an outstanding track record of student success: 97% of CV students enroll in college and 65% graduate within 6 years, nearly all with bachelor’s degrees. This is truly extraordinary. Nationally only 21% of low-income, first-gen students who enroll in college earn a bachelor’s degree within 6 years.
Perhaps just as important, CV has accomplished this in alignment with our shared values. We always demand that students think critically and work hard. That’s an absolute. But we don’t ask students to pull up their sagging pants. We affirm students’ cultural identities, and encourage them to author their own definitions of success as they pursue a degree.
