From High School to College Success
Every student deserves a K-12 education that prepares them for college, careers, and active citizenship. This includes a high school experience with excellent instruction and strong support. In this tool, you can see the most important measure of college readiness: whether high school graduates who enroll in college actually persist and ultimately earn a college degree or certificate. We include data for students who are estimated to have graduated from New York State high schools in 2012 and 2013, enrolled the following fall in a New York college or university, and participated in the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) — which provides financial aid to families generally earning up to $80,000 of Net Taxable Income per year for dependent undergraduate students.
