Outcomes

 
 

The Crossroads model consistently results in outstanding academic outcomes and above-average graduation rates for our scholars, especially as compared with other students of similar demographics. The benefits of the Crossroads Model are evident both during high school and in the years of success our scholars enjoy upon graduation.


Of our 128 Current Scholars*:

  • 66% Maintain an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • 97% Complete an approved pre-college program prior to graduation
  • 100% Complete at least 6 college tours between sophomore and senior year
  • 54% Enrolled in advanced/honors or AP classes

Beyond High School:

  • 98% graduate from rigorous Catholic high schools
  • 100% of the class of 2016 matriculated to accredited colleges or universities
  • 63% graduate from college in 6 years or less--well above average for minority or first-generation college students
  • Over 500 have graduated from high school as Crossroads Scholars
  • Crossroads alumni at Pittsburgh-area universities have an 18% higher than average graduation rate


These numbers are no surprise. Whereas the typical student’s focus on learning may end with the final bell of the school day, Crossroads scholars spend afternoons in tutoring sessions with our team; during summer vacations they join us for enrichment courses, college visits, career exploration, and jobs or internships that will prepare them for college and careers.
