Wait, did you say high school application?

First Graduate recruits students from public middle schools in the SFUSD. Once it is time for students to transition to high school, First Graduate helps students apply to the right high schools where they can become strong college candidates and gain the academic skills necessary to succeed in college. Students in San Francisco must apply to high school because all high schools are city-wide schools. So even if a student chooses to continue to go to public school, they will need to put together a top-notch application to get into the more competitive high schools.
