Mission Statement

12+ IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
THAT INSPIRES STUDENTS FROM UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES TO PURSUE EDUCATION BEYOND 12TH GRADE.

Description

From the first day of freshman year to the moment diplomas are handed out on graduation day, our students will be immersed in a school environment that advocates and supports their post-secondary goals. When students are expected to attend college, they are more likely to make the connection between their current coursework and future success. This leads to less absences, higher grades, and ultimately, more students enrolling and obtaining post-secondary degrees.

In an effort to combat budget cuts that have plagued the Philadelphia public schools, 12+ opened the first Plus Center in the Kensington Health Sciences Academy (KHSA) during the 2012-2013 school year and expanded their services to the entire school of 350 students.

Since the start of 12+’s programming, KHSA’s post-secondary enrollment rate has significantly increased from 11% to over 50%. KHSA is projected to increase the post-secondary enrollment rate to over 80% for the 2012-2013 academic year.
