Bringing a charter-school approach to college

On March 27th, The Boston Globe featured a story on Match's newest innovation called Match Beyond.  As an alternative hybrid college model, Match Beyond aims to significantly increase the college completion rates of low-income students, as well as to help them find middle class employment after obtaining their degree(s).

Match Beyond is partnering with Southern New Hampshire University's College For America, whose competency-based, online platform is much more accessible (and affordable) to these students for whom traditional college was not a good fit.  Of the 47 students who began the program last year, almost all are still enrolled and working with the Match Beyond team to complete their degree(s).  And of those still enrolled, four students already have completed their Associate's degree and moved onto the Bachelor's program.
