Preparing High School Students for College through a Variety of Readiness Programs

In its May 2012 report, Preparing High School Students for College: An Exploratory Study of College Readiness Programs in Texas”, the National Center for Postsecondary Research shares the findings of its study into various college readiness programs targeted at high school students.

“This study examines 37 college readiness partnership programs in Texas and the partnerships that created them, drawing on information from relevant research and Texas policy literature; an online scan of college readiness partnership programs in Texas; and site visits to high schools, colleges, and community-based organizations in the Houston and Dallas–Fort Worth areas. The authors identify key characteristics of college readiness partnerships and programs as well as benefits and challenges associated with their implementation and sustainability (NCPR Publications Page)

Associated with the report is a series of videos describing various college readiness collaborations. View one of these videos, highlighting the work of South Texas College, here:
