Read a summary of the report, “Peak Experiences: Raising Aspirations and Educational Achievement for Rural Youth in Adirondack Communities.” To receive a copy of the report, contact FES at info@fesnet.org or by calling 802-462-3170.

High schools that participated in a two-year program to motivate rural students to attend college saw a rise in the number of students going on to postsecondary education, according to a report.

Produced by the Cornwall, Vt.-based Foundation for Excellent Schools, the study examined 12 high schools from 10 counties in upstate New York. It found that some schools increased the number of students attending college by as much as 32 percent between the graduating classes of 2002 and 2004. The program, Adirondack Excellent Schools Program, was developed by the Foundation for Excellent Schools.
