We believe that education is one of the most important tools for success.
Statistics consistently prove that some type of education beyond high school—whether a degree or a technical certification—is necessary for the future of our students and for our local community.
Further education drives down unemployment rates and increases individual salaries, but it also leads to a more engaged community through increased volunteerism and voter participation.
Our goal: To increase the proportion of residents who hold high-quality college degrees, credentials, or certificates to 60 percent by the year 2025. To increase educational attainment in our community, we focus on:
- Kindergarten readiness
- STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math)
- Creating a positive college and career-oriented culture
