Emphasizing Student, School and Community Strengths

Too often low-income, first-generation, and minority students as well as parents and schools are bombarded with negative language about their academic potential.

In contrast, GO College works from a research-based approach which believes that education and student outcomes can be enriched by drawing upon the unique knowledge, skills, abilities, ideas, and practices of students, educators, and community members. Using this approach to appreciate the perseverance, creativity, and collective responsibility in the community, GO College and its community partners recognize, emphasize, and work with the existing strengths of communities students, families, and schools.
