8% is unacceptable. But, better is possible.
Since 2013, College Bridge has been incubated by New Orleans College Prep (NOCP).
It was was founded by the Directors of Alumni Support and College Counseling at Cohen College Prep High School in the NOCP Network. As a result of their work, Cohen students are beating the odds:
100% completed the FAFSA vs. 49% statewide
90% enrolled in college (including 78% to schools tracked by the
National Student Clearinghouse vs. 59% statewide)
85% are persisting in college to date
Cohen has the highest college enrollment rate of any open-enrollment public school in the city of New Orleans.
