8% (National Average) vs. 100% (EMERGE Students)
Across the country, only 8% of students from underserved communities with competitive grades and top SAT scores apply to a single selective college or university their senior year of high school. At EMERGE, we are determined to change these statistics. Through exposure to the nation’s top colleges and universities through summer college tours, targeted one-on-one college advising, and a strong community of support, students like Micheal have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
