A symbol of college attainment, the PLUS Center is constructed within the walls of the partner school and functions as a central hub for all college readiness and access services for the entire student body.
Every high school is unique. 12+ works with counselors, teachers, administrators, and student leaders in each partner school to understand and respond to their college readiness needs.
From working with families to community groups, 12+ believes strong relationships with the neighborhoods of the partner school will encourage collective empowerment for college attainment for the students.
With over 100 organizations promoting youth achievement in Philadelphia, 12+ collaborates with established nonprofits and universities to provide wrap-around services.
From the first day of freshman year to the moment diplomas are handed out on graduation day, we strive for a culture in which our students are immersed in a school environment that advocates and supports their postsecondary goals. When students are expected to attend college, they are more likely to make the connection between their current coursework and future success. This leads to fewer absences, higher grades, and ultimately, more students enrolling and obtaining postsecondary degrees.
Getting into college is just the beginning. To help our students reach the finish line, we assist our partner schools in preparing them for the academic and social demands of a postsecondary environment. Once they get there, 12+ provides ancillary alumni services and continues to follow students' progress to support them every step of the way.
