Evidence from a 2012 study conducted by Pacific Research & Evaluation (PRE) shows that our students are prepared and motivated to succeed further in college. The PRE study found that 73% of Gateway graduates continue on in post-secondary education and earn college credentials. Our 793 graduates from 2013-2014 are no longer among the young people statistically destined to live shorter, less healthy lives. Nor are they as likely to pass the legacy of poverty to their children. Collectively, these graduates will earn more than $200 million more in their lifetimes than those who did not complete school.
