New 2024 Charter Attainment Profiles from My Future NC

By News

At last week’s State Board of Education meeting, members heard a presentation from MyFutureNC CEO Cecilia Holden about progress to date on educational attainment goals for North Carolina. Holden’s presentation included a call to action for school boards (district as well as charter), urging them to adopt local attainment goals and measure progress for students enrolled in college-level classes–as well as MyFutureNC performance indicators.

MyFutureNC has developed a new dashboard highlighting county attainment profiles–and also including state and regional profiles with data about district schools as well as charter schools.

Statewide figures on charter schools show:

  • 82% of charter school graduates plan to enroll in a post-secondary institution (and 69% did so within 12 months).
  • 86% of students who enroll in college persist to the second year.
  • 71% of students who enroll go on to earn a degree or certificate within 6 years.
  • 43% of high school students participated in the state’s Career & College Promise programs.
  • 27% of high school students took at least one AP exam.

Here are the statewide profiles:
