Starting a 9th Grade Success Program - May 6th
Research overwhelmingly points to ninth grade as the “make or break” year. Students who successfully pass all their ninth grade classes are four times more likely to graduate than those who don’t pass all classes. Further, for each course a student fails during their ninth grade year, the likelihood of graduation reduces by 30%. In fact, the degree to which ninth graders stay on track is a stronger predictor of on-time graduation than the combination of eighth grade test scores, socioeconomic status, race, gender, and student mobility.

Establishing a ninth grade success program is a low-cost, research-supported strategy to support incoming ninth graders. In the fall of 2021, when many of these students will not have been inside a schoolhouse since the middle of their seventh grade year, such support will be even more vital. The ninth grade year is an especially complex and consequential year for adolescents, and this year’s ninth graders will be entering high school less prepared than ever, with unprecedented layers of academic and social-emotional complexities.

Stand for Children’s Center for High School Success can help! By starting your own 9th Grade Success Program now, you can change the trajectory for this pandemic-plagued group of entering ninth graders.
