21st Century Scholars
Although Bethpage Union Free School District in suburban New York had a 99% graduation rate and a 98% Regents Diploma rate, its educators thought they could do more to prepare students for success after high school.

The latest Educational Leadership reveals the district's journey in establishing this program.
