Thurgood Marshall Academy Alumni Support Program extends services also impact nearly 500 young adults in the school’s alumni network. The Alumni Program Manager maintains a database of information on each graduate, and helps alumni access resources at their universities and provides college and financial aid counseling both to college-enrolled alumni and to alumni who have not yet matriculated into college. She also manages the Alumni Emergency Fund, to which college-enrolled graduates can apply for assistance purchasing books or securing housing deposits. In 2013-14, we distributed over $10,000 in financial aid to our alumni.
With the support of the College Counseling department and the Alumni Program Manager, graduates from Thurgood Marshall Academy enroll in and graduate from college at rates that are not only higher than the local average, but significantly higher than national enrollment and graduation rates as well.
