Our Story

St. Louis Graduates High School to College Center opened as a pilot project in Summer 2013 after a group of youth advisors and high school counselors began talking about ways to address "summer melt" in St. Louis. Summer melt is the phenomenon where college-intending high school seniors do not enroll in college in the fall, many times despite having acceptance letters and financial aid in place. It is estimated to affect up to 40% of high school graduates.

Previous research indicated that as little as 2 to 3 additional hours of counseling in the summer months could help students stay on track with their college plans.
