School improvement: as an example, during Pathways’ 6 years at East Side High School in Newark, school-wide percentages have increased from a) 54% to 78% for students planning college attendance, and b) 11% to 23% for students attending 4-year colleges.

Annual cost-per-student: approximately $1,200 for twice-weekly 2-hour classes and field trips; for school-wide ancillary school-turnaround programming, $80 – $100, depending on school size.

College access: since 2004, 100% of Pathways 1,100 graduating Scholars have won admission to college – most to more than one.

College completion: we began collecting National Student Clearinghouse data in 2007; since then 90% have matriculated; of those, 68% are either still enrolled or have graduated.

Scholarship and award dollars earned: $2 million to $4 million annually

Academic achievement at admission: Pathways selects applicants on the basis of potential, not simply academic performance, applying multiple selection criteria (including home environment) with the result that grade achievement of entering Scholars ranges from a “low” Pathways rating (GPA at 2.0, or “C,” and below) to a “high” rating (GPA at 3.0, or “B,” and above).
