For over a decade, our Alumni Support office has worked with Brooke alumni, providing individualized advising, supporting them to complete Financial Aid processes, and tracking progress toward graduation within 6 years. We know from our advising that persistence isn’t only impeded by academic or social stressors, but financial strain as well.
This year, we are raising funds to pilot addressing these unexpected financial needs (clearing pre-semester balances, providing expanded textbook and fees support for STEM majors, etc.) among our alumni—and to understand whether there is a universe in which we can help to resolve these funding gaps in the long term. We hope this effort increases the ratio of our alumni able to persist in their second year and beyond, especially as larger classes of Brooke High alumni enter college!
