Diplomas Now benefits students, their schools and their communities. For students, this means graduating with a meaningful diploma ready for the future. For schools, it means raising achievement scores and graduation rates and letting teachers teach by providing extra adults to help meet students’ social and emotional needs. For the community, it means decreased dropout rates, a better trained workforce and new generation of local leaders.

Operating in a growing number of middle and high schools, Diplomas Now is an i3 grant-winning, public-private partnership between three major national nonprofits, local school districts and our funders.

“We believe in the promise of Diplomas Now, and are excited to step up our commitment to help grow a program with a successfull track record of improving student achievement and decreasing dropout rates.”
