Graduation Alliance
Today in the U.S., there are more than 31 million adults and 5 million high school-aged youth who left school without a diploma. These individuals are arguably the most disenfranchised in our nation with extraordinarily high rates of joblessness, homelessness, and complex life issues.With three school years disrupted by the pandemic and no new normal in sight, chronic absenteeism and unaccounted for students along with falling graduation rates in states across the country represent two of the most pressing issues facing public education.

Since 2007, Graduation Alliance has worked in partnership with educators, government agencies, and community leaders across the nation to provide pathways to economic mobility for high-risk students, both youth and adults, who left high school without a diploma. Our Attendance Recovery program works further down the lifecycle to identify systemic to and provide personalized interventions for barriers to school participation and consistent engagement for students in grades K-12 in support of the long-term goal of graduation.

Attendance Recovery
The ENGAGE Attendance Recovery program is designed to stabilize and improve student attendance and academic performance. The program includes state-wide support for districts and outreach to and ongoing academic and social/emotional coaching support for district-referred students who are completely disengaged, chronically absent, or academically at-risk.

Independent evaluation of the Attendance Recovery program – using data from a large, highly diverse school district – demonstrated significant gains in student attendance, GPA, credit earned rate, and graduation rate at 8x less cost than typically required to achieve similar outcomes.

Dropout Recovery
Graduation Alliance’s Dropout Recovery program partners with school districts to provide a comprehensive online educational program with robust supports to high school-aged youth who left high school without a diploma. Students engage online at the time and place that works best for them so they can succeed in earning an accredited high school diploma from their district.

Based on a 2021 study by Mission Measurement, Graduation Alliance’s Dropout Recovery programs have significantly outperformed the national benchmark for dropout recovery programs established by the Impact Genome Project on both efficacy and cost per outcome, providing 27% more outcomes for 33% less cost.

Adult Workforce Diploma
The Adult Workforce Diploma Program is an outcomes-based program that transfers the risk from the state to providers who receive payments only when students meet performance milestones that matter to individuals, the community, employers, and the state.

The Adult Workforce Diploma program has resulted in measurable increases in labor market participation in high demand fields, increased wages and better career opportunities, and more access to employer-sponsored healthcare for a population that has struggled with the economic and social consequences of dropping out of school.
