College Dreams operates our core middle and high school programs through our College Incentive Program. In 2011, College Dreams was able to expand our core programs in Josephine County through funding from the Federal TRIO/Talent Search Program. Youth enrolled in College Incentive or Talent Search may also be eligible for the IDA Program or Career Build.

A study of Dreamers and matched comparison students from the high school class of 2005 demonstrated that Dreamers were arrested 74% less often by the end of 10th grade, and dropped out of high school 62% less frequently by the end of 12th grade. Dreamers were more than twice as likely to be a member of the National Honor Society, and to be fully prepared for college admission. Dreamers received four times the amount of scholarship awards at their high school senior awards celebrations. Our alumni who enter college boast a six-year BA/BS completion rate of 80%, well above the national 55%-60% average for all students, and far above the 11% benchmark for low-income, first-generation students.
