Why Stockton Scholars?
Higher education has for decades served as a gateway to the middle class and a key part of the path to the American Dream. College graduates, on average, earn 56% more than high school graduates, face lower risks of unemployment, and are more likely to contribute to retirement plans, own homes, and be married.
For Stockton to grow as a community, every child deserves the opportunity to pursue higher education. We know that there are still too many barriers for our kids to make the jump from K-12 to college and career training.
