Bright Prospect

Program Description

Bright Prospect empowers high potential, low-income students to gain admission, succeed and graduate from four-year colleges and universities by providing a comprehensive counseling and support system throughout their high school and college years. - Bright Prospect has grown from 12 students in 2003 to 2,075 students in 2016. - 98% of our high school students matriculate to college. - 91% of our college students graduate with a Bachelor�s Degree. - 25% of our college graduates continue on to an advanced degree. - Bright Prospect students have graduated from 14 of the 15 top colleges and universities in the nation (among them Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, Dartmouth Amherst, Swarthmore, Bowdoin, Wellesley, Pomona and Williams). Others attend or have graduated from a University of California or California State University campus while a smaller proportion get their start at a community college and then transfer to UC or Cal State. The Bright Prospect program is open to all students in the high schools we serve. Wherever our students attend college, Bright Prospect supports them through to graduation. We accomplish all of this for an annual cost of close to $1,000 per student per year. This cost-effective program is scalable and we are replicating it in California and other states.
