DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s an effort to work with the nation’s most challenged middle and high schools to boost graduation rates, and it’s happening right here in Detroit.
The Detroit Collegiate Preparatory Academy (DCP) – a Diplomas Now and Detroit Public School, will open Tuesday offering students a unique educational recipe that has the potential to significantly boost graduation rates.
Penny Bailer is the Executive Director of City Year Detroit.
“We promise 85 percent graduation from high school; 85 percent of those will enroll in college; and 85 percent of those will graduate from college, career ready without remediation,” Bailer told WWJ.
City Year is working with Johns Hopkins University on this project.
