Getting Students Back on Track
Envision @ Eastern
Companies for Causes supported the launch of Eastern's credit recovery program - Envision @ Eastern - for students who have fallen behind in their coursework. CforC ensures that Envision students are exposed to college and careers through College Trips and our innovative “Easternship” program.
In its flagship year, Envision @Eastern had the highest daily attendance rate of students, at 72 percent, of all DC Twilight Academies. A majority of Eastern students passed a majority or or all of their classes and every student who was eligible for grade promotion during the first term was been promoted to their appropriate grade level.
For many reasons, students struggle to remain on the path to graduation. Up to 70% of high school freshmen are unprepared to pass Algebra I; many students often struggle to stay motivated and engaged.
Here is how you can help.
