College Success

Connects students to their post-secondary academic and career success

As Future 5 students navigate the path from high school to college, the College Success Program connects them to a multi-layered network of academic, financial, social/emotional and career support, helping ensure college progression and a pathway to reach their career goals. 

  • Academic Support & Tutoring

Our team connects with local students at the Future 5 office and also supports our student members who are away at other colleges and universities.

Did You Know?

  • Across the United States, low-income, first-generation students are nearly four times more likely to leave higher education after the first year than their peers. 
  • In Connecticut, the drop-out rate at public two year-colleges is a staggering 50%, and only 16% of students complete community college within three years.
