A handful of high schools in some of the country’s toughest neighborhoods created a curriculum to help low-income students earn college credits while attending high school. 

Kevin Teasley, founder of the nonprofit Greater Educational Opportunities Foundation, told TmZ Blog his schools empower students to do more than what traditional schools allow them to do.    

Its flagship location, 21st Century Charter School in Gary, Indiana, was founded in 2005. The GEO Next Generation High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was developed three years ago, and the GEO Next Generation High School in Indianapolis was launched during the pandemic.

When Teasley opened his first school in Gary, he had a mission to combat the high school dropout rate in the area, which was about 50%. He wanted to inspire kids to not only go to college but graduate college.

For several years, he implemented various college prep courses to help students ready themselves for the transition to college. They worked on college applications and toured college campuses. 

However, Teasley realized it wasn’t working.

He came to the conclusion that the students he was trying to help already had the mindset that they weren’t going to college because no one in their families had gone before them. About 90% of the households in the area didn’t have a college graduate, Teasley said.

In 2010, one of Teasley’s brightest students, Vincent, said he was dropping out of school. He was 16 years old and just finishing up his sophomore year.

“He looked at me, and he said, ‘Look, nobody in my family went to college. I’m not going to college. And my family needs me to bring money home to help pay the bills,’” Teasley recalled.
