Our Mission

The mission of the National Dropout Prevention Center is to increase graduation rates through research and evidence-based solutions.

Since inception, the National Dropout Prevention Center has worked to improve opportunities for all young people to fully develop the academic, social, work, and healthy life skills needed to graduate from high school and lead productive lives. By promoting awareness of successful programs and policies related to dropout prevention, the work of the Center and its network members has made an impact on education from the local to the national level.
