In Full Swing - Graduate On Point

Graduate On Point began at Brainerd High School in 2013 under the leadership of Dr. Mary Rausch. As a result of strong gains at Brainerd, the program was implemented at Bradley Central High School in 2016 under the direction of Ashley Humble. In January of 2018 we were thrilled to begin Graduate On Point at Howard School of Academics and Technology with 35 amazing students who had just finished their first semester of high school! Through this unique opportunity, the selected students have been and will be supported by the On Point Coordinator walking alongside them through their graduation date in 2021!
