This year’s graduates once again proved that Thurgood Marshall Academy is making significant strides in fulfilling its mission as a college preparatory institution: 100% of the members of the Class of 2018 were admitted to college. Of the graduates of the Class of 2017, 84% enrolled in a college or university within the past year. Thurgood Marshall Academy alumni enroll—and graduate—at rates higher than their peers nationwide. Among Thurgood Marshall Academy alumni, approximately 60% graduate from college within five years, a rate that not only exceeds the District of Columbia average, but is on par with the national average. The achievement is particularly noteworthy given that the area in which Thurgood Marshall Academy works has a college graduation rate far below the national average.
