COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS

FOR NEW VILLAGE STUDENTS, PREPARING FOR SUCCESS IN COLLEGE BEGINS IN THE 9TH GRADE.

Not only do students develop an individual learning plan designed to meet college acceptance requirements, but each student explores her own career interests through field trips, internships, and independent projects. During this process, students discover what kinds of education, training, and college degrees are necessary to be successful in various careers.

Our students enthusiastically participate in college visits and also develop close relationships with mentors who share their own experience of the challenges and rewards of attending college. Upon graduating New Village, some students may choose an option other than college, but our curriculum prepares each of our students to at least have the option to apply.

We know that the path to college acceptance and eventually college graduation is long and unpredictable—particularly for students who may be the first members of their family to attend and/or are juggling the responsibility of parenting. Despite these challenges, 20 seniors (77%) passed the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) and 23 (85%) went on to post-secondary education in 2014. Six graduates are enrolled in four-year colleges, including UCLA, California State University (CSU) Long Beach, CSU Los Angeles, and CSU Northridge. Sixteen are enrolled or enrolling in two-year community colleges and one is attending a career college.
