Canfield High School is proud to announce that it has received the College Success Award, which honors schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for college, enroll in college and succeed once they get there.
“Canfield High School is providing their students with a high-quality public education that equips and empowers them with the skills to forge a path to bright futures,” said Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools.org. “We applaud students, parents, teachers and the entire community in Canfield for their dedication to pursuing college success.”
Launched by GreatSchools.org, the leading nonprofit provider of trusted school information, the 2019 College Success Award recognizes 1,722 schools in 25 states. Award-winning schools have a successful track record of graduating students who later enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year, according to available data from each state.
College- and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy, as 65 percent of jobs will require a postsecondary degree by 2020. Canfield High School is one the approximately 20 percent of eligible schools in Ohio that won the College Success Award.
The College Success Award is possible because Ohio is leading the nation in collecting and being transparent in sharing information on how students do after high school, which is valuable information for families, educators, and policymakers.
