Across the nation, 1,742 high schools were awarded the 2022 College Success Award. Of those, 66 schools are located in Alabama.
According to a release, “The GreatSchools.org College Success Award has allowed many communities to identify and celebrate their local schools that are doing well in ensuring every student is prepared for college, and greatly succeeding once they get there.”
The release states 86% of students from College Success Award-winning schools do not require remediation in college.
The award has a focus on educational equity, recognizing schools that excel at preparing K-12 students from lower income households.
