In a nation where nearly two-thirds of all American jobs will require some form of postsecondary education or training by 20181, it’s more important than ever before to inspire and prepare students for postsecondary success as early as the middle grades. In 2014, Graduation Alliance seized an opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to advancing the lives of all students by acquiring the nation’s third largest exploration and planning platform (Connect!). From Honolulu to Miami to Boston and in hundreds of places in between, Graduation Alliance now provides scalable online solutions to increase the connectivity between coursework, skills and the credentials necessary for students to pursue a brighter future.
Graduation Alliance’s Exploration & Planning Platforms cultivate early development of the postsecondary awareness middle and high school students require, guiding them through a progression of intuitive, age-appropriate discovery and organization tools, including:
Ensuring families and educators remain an integral part of their student's postsecondary planning process, Graduation Alliance’s Middle and High School Platforms fully support a set of role-based collaboration tools. Entirely FERPA, COPPA, and PPRA compliant, our platforms offer a suite of management tools to streamline the success planning, communication, and progress tracking needs of educators as they work with students to take the guesswork out of planning for life after high school.
