College & Career Success
College and Career Success encompasses strategies that increase student readiness for post-high school success. Hawai‘i P-20 coordinates the following national efforts:
Hawai‘i is part of the American Diploma Project (ADP) network of 36 states. Hawai‘i is committed to raising high school standards, strengthening assessments and curriculum, and aligning high school requirements with the expectations of employers and colleges. Beginning with the high school graduating class of 2013, Hawai‘i students will have the option to earn the Board of Education Recognition Diploma that is aligned with ADP recommendations for a rigorous high school curriculum. For more information on the American Diploma Project please visit the Achieve website at www.achieve.org
In efforts to promote the revised diploma Board of Education Recognition Diploma beginning with the class of 2013, Hawaii P-20 is launching a multi-year community awareness and action campaign in the summer of 2009 to support college and career readiness for high school students. This campaign, named “Step Up,” encourages students to earn the newly revised Hawai‘i Board of Education’s Recognition Diploma called the “Step Up Diploma”.
GEAR UP Hawai‘i, Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, is a federally funded program whose mission is to significantly increase the number of students who are prepared to enter and succeed in college. It works with community and corporate partners to improve the systems that affect the college-going rates of traditionally underrepresented populations, especially low-income students. GEAR UP encourages Hawaii’s teenagers to have high expectations, stay in school, study hard, and take classes that will prepare them for college.
