  • 85% come from single parent homes
  • Parent incomes range from $9,000 to $40,000/yr
  • 75% are African American, 20% are Hispanic, 5% Asian
  • Not necessarily the top academically performing students
  • 98% graduate from high school within four years
  • 98% of graduates continue their education beyond high school
  • Accepted without regard to race, religion or ethnicity
