The College Rush is dedicated to ensuring that higher education is a reality for students from low-income communities in the Houston area. For fifteen years, YES Prep Public Schools has redefined what is possible in public education. With more than 8,000 college-bound students across 13 campuses, we are a system of high performing public charter schools, proving that students from low-income communities can achieve at the highest academic levels. Our exceptional results prove that better outcomes are not only possible, but also probable, when school systems invest in human capital, build a culture of high expectations, and create effective support systems to ensure that student achievement is at the forefront of every decision made.
As a College Rush participant, you will raise funds to help YES Prep increase the number of students who graduate from college.
