Students in the OneGoal program create and implement the 3-year college success model. The program begins in the junior year of high school and students are given support until they finish their first year of college. Students are supported through methods to increase their GPA's and standardized test scores to access more selective and supportive colleges and identify their best-fit college application lists. The program supports five leadership principles: ambition, integrity, professionalism, resilience and resourcefulness.
