The Montgomery County Ohio College Promise Program's mission is to identify, select and support up to 500 Montgomery County, poverty impacted, eighth grade students within the next 10 years that have shown academic promise so that the dream of attending and graduating from college becomes a reality.
The College Promise Commitment
The College Promise Program will provide a life changing opportunity for up to 50 Montgomery County students a year. These students, whose lives have been impacted by poverty, will be identified and selected during their 8th grade year. Each student will be supported through high school by a caring adult mentor who will meet with them weekly for 30 to 60 minutes at their school and through programming offered by the College Promise Program and our college and university partners.
The selected students, upon the successful completion of high school and the meeting of the entrance requirements to Sinclair, Wright State, Denison University, Kettering College, and other 4 year university partners, will be awarded scholarships that allow them to attend college at little to no cost to them or their families.
The College Promise Impact
By breaking the cycle of poverty for up to 500 Montgomery County Students the College Promise Program will have a profound impact on not only their quality of life but also on the quality of life of each of our communities. By attaining their college education at a local college/university College Promise students will be attractive to Montgomery County Employers which will retain our investment right here at home.
