Sixty-six Percent of Stark's High School Class of 2010 has Now Gone to College

 Freshman moving into dorm

Aggregate figures for all 17 Stark County school districts through the spring of 2011 show that 66% - or close to 3,000 members - of the Class of 2010 have now enrolled in college. Ten years ago, the county's college going rate was 45%.   

 

The new percentage includes students who elected not to go to college immediately in the fall of 2010, but who waited a semester to start. Data comes from the National Student Clearinghouse Student Tracker System that enables districts to track student college enrollment at 95% of all colleges across the nation.

 

The latest estimate from the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) is that 62.7% of Ohio high school graduates and 63.3% of all graduates across the nation go directly on to college[1]. Second semester tracking is not done by NCHEMS.

 

Student Tracker is funded through a grant from the Stark Education Partnership.
