Ms. Fawaz selected as OneGoal Program Director at Catalyst Maria!
Catalyst's Maria's Director of College Readiness and Assessment Ms. Sasha Fawaz was recently selected as the OneGoal Program Director at Catalyst Maria!
As a OneGoal Program Director, she will be a catalyst for student growth and achievement for the students in the high school at Catalyst Maria.
Great leaders like Ms. Fawaz are the heart of our work and the foundation of the OneGoal program model. As the nation’s only teacher-led college persistence organization, she will lead scholars to reach their full potential and graduate from college.
As it stands, only nine percent of CPS ninth graders are expected to graduate from college by age 25. In stark contrast, 87 percent of OneGoal’s high school graduates have enrolled in college. Of those who enroll, 83 percent are persisting in college or have graduated with a college degree.
OneGoal has seen incredible school-wide impact as a result of our model. GPAs and ACT scores rise, with individual students, in classrooms and school-wide. OneGoal will welcome Ms. Fawaz as part of a unique collaborative of talented educators who support each other, share best practices, and whose feedback enables us to continually improve upon our curriculum, program model and organization as a whole.
Congratulations Ms. Fawaz and the Catalyst Maria team!
