Mission Statement

The mission of High School Inc. is to empower youth and strengthen communities through education and business partnerships.
 
High School Inc.'s vision is to prepare high school students for a 21st Century workplace and equip them to be contributing employees, successful entrepreneurs and life-long learners.

Background Statement

At the beginning of the 21st century, people were leaving the city of Santa Ana. Santa Ana students were enrolled in “underperforming schools.” Graduates of Santa Ana’s high schools were seen as lacking in skills for employment. Students were not going on to college or four year universities. Businesses were closing or moving elsewhere.

Urgent talks to avoid a dismal future for Santa Ana were begun by representatives of the local school district and chamber of commerce. These discussions led to the design of High School Inc. as a high school that brought together the best of America’s innovations in business and education.

High School Inc. was started in 2007 with the belief that students needed a better culture of achievement and success in school. For this purpose a high school was founded on the core American value of opportunity. It was time for the great equalizer, education, to once again level the playing field for all participants. High School Inc. is a creative solution by an entire community. Each student is guided to see a personal vision of a successful future.

Education and business leaders studied and toured successful schools throughout the United States for three years before there was a commitment to the High School Inc. design. Current literature was reviewed. Surveys were conducted. The chamber of commerce initiated and paid for a research study to determine the business areas most in need to help with the local economy. These areas became the six High School Inc. Academies. Each academy promotes multiple pathways for success that contain the  course work necessary to prepare students for additional education after high school.

The school district and chamber of commerce spent one year in preparation of the faculty and facilities before High School Inc. welcomed its first student. High School Inc. continues this process with monthly advisory meetings, business partner forums, yearly curriculum and business standards assessments, and retreats with educators, students, parents and representatives from business and higher education. All stakeholders have been participants in the design, implementation and monitoring the performance of HighSchool Inc. An annual report is conducted to ensure a continual process of review and evaluation of High School Inc.’s total performance.

Today, there are 1300 students enrolled in six High School Inc. Academies. Plans are in preparation to make the entire school a “wall-to-wall” High School Inc. model. 





Impact Statement

The Six Academies in High School Inc. have developed largely dependent on business partners and the collaboration between faculty and volunteers. Providing support for 1,369 students in the 2016/2017 school year, High School Inc. helped these young adults to...

-Graduate at a rate of 97.5% (State average - 83.2% and county average - 90.8%)
-Secure 157 internships throughout the school year and summer
-Earn 470 certifications
-Bring 152 Sophomores and Juniors to Leadership Camp
-Provide 95 scholarships for internship and academic accomplishments
 
PRIMARY GOALS:
1. Capacity Building - To continue to grow and attract the right students and partners, the program needs additional staffing, marketing/PR, and a fully developed project management system to monitor, evaluate and improve the achievement of students.
2. Strengthen the involvement of the Santa Ana Business community.

Needs Statement

1. All students in an academy by 2017/2018, making Valley High School the first comprehensive High School in California to be academy based.
2. Increase the number of business partnerships to150 and business champions to 12 supporting each Academy.
3. Achieve 2016/2017 Funding Goal of $400,000, a 55% increase over the previous year.
4. Provide internship opportunities for 150 students during the 2016/2017 school year. 
5. Provide certification opportunities for 200 students during the 2016/2017 school year.

High School Inc. Academies

​​High School Inc. Academies at Valley High School
Through a partnership of the Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce, the High School Inc.Foundation, and the Santa Ana Unified School District, High School Inc.
provides College and Career Readiness opportunities through six on campus academies. Students attend core academic classes required for graduation in a Small Learning Community with a focus in one of six subjects: Culinary Arts & Hospitality; Health Care; Automotive, Transportation & Logistics; New Media; Global Business; Engineering & Computer Science. In these pathways, students acquire the specific skills needed to secure employment in high-growth industries and concurrently gain competencies and leadership training in preparation for enrollment in college/higher education. Multiple paths to student success are made possible by the coordinated efforts of industry-led community partners and a specially trained faculty and administration. Together, we provide educational experiences relevant to today’s world—including mentorships, competitions, internships, and job shadowing—that are intended to capture student’s imagination and inspire success.
Budget  $400,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Partnerships in Education
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success  By the end of the 2017/2018 school year 100% of the available student population at Valley High School will be a part of the High School Inc. program, the graduation rate will remain constant or grow from 95% with this wall to wall expansion, and the number of students accepted to college will grow from roughly 80% to 90%. 
Program Long-Term Success  The program's long term success would show 100% of the secondary student population in the Santa Ana Unified School District being reaching by High School Inc. programs and opportunities within their active school day. The graduation rate for our programs would remain constant or grow as we continue to expand, at 95%, and the community would begin to see positive employment changes in the quality of employee that was coming out of Santa Ana coupled with a growing college attendance rate and graduate return rate. 
Program Success Monitored By  Survey reports are collected from the students after events and activities hosted by the foundation for data to asses the value of said program. Graduation rates and college acceptance rates are also used as success points. Literacy goals are set and tracked based on state standards. Tracking surveys are also conducted will all seniors and both one and two year graduate students as a monitoring system. 
Examples of Program Success 
The growth rate from a 62% graduation rate in 2007/08 when the program began to a 97.5% graduation rate in 2016/17 is a perfect example of success! With over 157 internships awarded throughout the 2016/17 year, 470 industry relevant certifications and 682 volunteer hours committed, our students are continuously moving toward success. High School Inc. this year also gave 152 Junior and Sophomore students the chance to explore their own confidence and creativity through a leadership development camp in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America and Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center helping to create one of their most successful to date for high school students.
