Impact + Results

Education Opens Doors is committed to being a data-driven organization. As a result of our program, students demonstrate increased motivation, improved academic success, and informed decision making on their path to post-secondary and career.

We utilize both quantitative and qualitative metrics to measure our short and long-term impact. We analyze data from our partners via pre- and post- surveys and assessments that measure changes in students' knowledge on topics related to navigating high school, professionalism, exploring career paths, and financial aid and capture the key factors of motivation, social engagement, and family circumstances.

A comprehensive summary can be found in our Annual Program Reports below. Please note due to COVID-19, we have not been able to analyze data and outcomes for the 2019-2020 School year.

I am invested in the Education Opens Doors Program because I have seen an increase in the number of students that apply and are accepted to magnet schools and early college high schools from our campus. Not only have I seen a difference in students performances overall, but they also see that how they work today impacts their chances for tomorrow.
