Imagine if going to college was an option for every student in San Francisco! At First Graduate, our mission is to help students be the first in their family to graduate college.
Each of our students makes a 10-12 year commitment—from seventh grade through college graduation—to succeed in school and beyond.
Students receive year-round coaching, academic enrichment, family guidance, career preparation, and access to college scholarships.
First Graduate currently serves 469 students, and a new group of 65 students will follow in their footsteps beginning this summer.
