Our Program

Filed in:
Our Program

First Graduate's effective college success program helps more than 350 San Francisco-based students each year. We make a 10-year commitment to each student, starting the summer after sixth grade through college graduation; our third cohort of students just completed the program and became the first in their families to graduate from college!

We have enrolled a new cohort of students recruited from San Francisco public middle schools: Everett, Gateway, Horace Mann, James Lick, Marina, Roosevelt (all part of SFUSD) and KIPP San Francisco Bay Academy (a public charter school) and the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco.

New Student Orientation

First Graduate Student Orientation

We are extremely excited to welcome 72 new students (and their families) to First Graduate!

After submitting applications, teacher references, and personal essays, these rising scholars stood out from their peers at our Discovery Day event where they wowed our staff and volunteers with their interview and critical thinking skills. We are so proud and can't wait to see what amazing things are in store for the class of 2024 (or as well call them, FG 14).

To see more pictures of the event, please check out our Facebook page.
