Academy of Hope alumni are on the move and seeing the results of their education. Seventy-seven percent of our graduates report that they have enrolled in college, certificate programs or vocational training. Nearly three-quarters of these students anticipate completing their studies within the next three years.
Before obtaining their GEDs or high school diplomas, only 33 % of Academy of Hope graduates earned more than $15,000 annually. However, armed with their high school equivalencies, 71% earned between $15,000 and $30,000, and 32% earned more than $30,000 each year. In addition, the percentage of graduates on public assistance dropped by 90%.
