National College Progression Rates for high schools participating in the National Student Clearinghouse StudentTracker® service

This report provides high school-to-college transition rates for graduates of public high schools. The rates are reported for students from six categories of high schools, based on the school-level demographic and geographic characteristics.

Recent years have seen increased interest in the secondary to postsecondary education link, particularly for students from low income and minority populations traditionally not well served by higher education. With the current administration’s call for every American to have at least one year of postsecondary education (Obama, 2009), it has become particularly important for educators and policymakers to have timely and comprehensive data on the high school-to-college transition of students.
