Éxito Program Proves Pivotal to High School Completion & Student Success

The Éxito program began in 2016 at Kensington Creative and Performing Arts (KCAPA) with incoming first-year students and extended until 2020, their graduating year.

KCAPA is a performing arts high school serving grades 9-12 in North Philadelphia.

Éxito supported youth that were struggling and off-track from graduating with case management services.

In 2021, Research for Action published a report demonstrating the program’s successful outcomes and positive impact on high school completion.

Read the full report here:

With Éxito’s guidance and resources, students involved were 37% more likely to graduate on time compared to off-track students not in the program.

Many of the graduating Éxito students have moved on to college or trade school.

At this time, Congreso is looking for opportunities to expand the Éxito program in current and additional schools.
