Utilizing a three-year, teacher-led college success model, OneGoal strives to make college graduation an attainable goal for all students regardless of their socioeconomic background. Recently, the University of Chicago conducted an evaluation to explore the impact that OneGoal has had on its students. Authored by Wladimir Zanoni and Tim Kautz of the University of Chicago and directed by Nobel laureate James Heckman, the study found the nonprofit’s strategies to be highly effective. The results revealed that participation in OneGoal’s programs significantly improve students’ postsecondary performance. In addition, it raises their college enrollment and persistence rates by as many as 20 percentage points. The nonprofit also helps students succeed while they are still in high school. Its programs have led to fewer absences, more credits, and higher ACT scores and overall GPAs.
