At Friendship, we challenge and support our students to be their best – to truly prepare them for the journey to and through college. Our commitment has produced more graduates accepted to college than any other public charter network in the District.
As part of our commitment to ensure Friendship students enroll in, adjust to and succeed in college, our Office of Alumni Affairs offers an array of services for high school graduates and their families. Here’s how we help develop college graduates:
- Early College credit courses
- College selection support
- Financial aid assistance
- SAT and ACT prep
- Scholarship application assistance
- College tours
- Workshops for students and families
- Character- and confidence-building activities
- College course selection support
- On- and off-college campus support
- Career pathways counseling
Additionally, once our alumni are enrolled in college, the Friendship Alumni Ambassadors Program supports our scholars by connecting them with Friendship upper classmen attending the same college or university.
With more than 2,000 alumni, the Friendship network is one of the largest public charter school alumni networks in the country. Our college partners include Temple University, Spelman College, Morehouse College, Carnegie Mellon University, Princeton University, Hampton University, North Carolina A&T, Bucknell University, Howard University, the University of San Francisco and the Naval Academy among many others.
