Our CEO, John C. Read, wrote an opinion piece for Charleston Currents on the FAFSA.
A year ago, with support from The InterTech Group, we created the FAFSA Pilot Project. We chose five high schools with the lowest FAFSA completion and highest poverty rates in our region, and we went to work.
One year later, FAFSA completion at Burke High, Cross High, North Charleston High, R.B. Stall High and St. John’s High has increased by more than 20 percentage points to 48%, and they’re not done yet.
