Stand is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability.
The Center for High School Success is a program of Stand for Children that was established to increase the number of high school students who are on track to graduate by the end of 9th grade. Research from the University of Chicago found that students who finished 9th grade on track were 4 times more likely to graduate high school. We used this research and developed practices, tools, and coaching to support high schools across the country in implementing successful 9th Grade Success Programs.
