Register now for the 2017 High School Benchmarks Report panel discussion and luncheon to inform House and Senate staff on high school graduates’ college enrollment, persistence and graduation rates, at the dawn of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Come discover how high schools in your congressional district and state benefit from this research and how this report can inform policymaking.

The 2017 High School Benchmarks Report: National College Progression Rates covers public and private high schools from all 50 states and the majority of the 100 largest districts in the United States, including about 40 percent of all public high school graduates or nearly 6 million graduates in total. The report will present a range of postsecondary outcomes for five high school graduating classes. This includes the immediate college enrollment rates for the class of 2016 and six-year college completion rates for the class of 2010 as well as their enrollments and completions in various majors (STEM and others).
