Achievement First is a network of 25 public charter schools serving over 8,000 students in grades K-12 in Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut, Brooklyn, New York and Providence, Rhode Island. At Achievement First, we celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of our high school graduates, while recognizing that the journey for our alumni is just beginning. Nationally, only 8.3 percent of low-income students graduate from college within six years. Achievement First’s goal is that at least 75% of our graduates will attain their college degree within six years. This is the reason that our work extends far beyond the intensive programming provided at the high school level to alumni support designed to foster persistence and help students reach their college goals.
