While there is a great deal of interest, research, and collaboration focused on improving college outcomes for the students we serve, college enrollment and completion rates for high school students in Boston still remains low.

Bottom Line is making an immediate impact on these challenges by growing our highly effective programs that provide intrusive, one-on-one support from our trained advisors. We served 2,274 high school and college students during the 2015–2016 school year with great results! This year, we continued to scale and are serving 2,508 students from Boston.

Collectively, across Bottom Line, 79% of our most recent class of students graduated within 6 years, which is more than 4 times the national average for low-income students.
