At Noble, we believe that a college degree is a pathway for our graduates to enter systems of power and create positive multi-generational change. Our families have overwhelmingly shared that they choose Noble because of the promise of their child attending college and we honor that commitment through our comprehensive four-year college counseling support.

In the midst of a global pandemic and the reckoning of racial injustice in this country, our College Teams’ collective work at Noble is to end the cycle of systemic racism within educational spaces and equip our students and graduates with the tools to dismantle racism and injustices.

Noble’s College Counseling Teams expose students to a comprehensive college access curriculum that spans from 9th to 12th grade. Prior to their senior year, students participate in college exposure activities, attend college visits, engage in college fairs, and hear from college admissions representatives throughout the school year. During their senior year, Noble students access one-on-one college counselor support and are engaged all year in their Seminar class to learn about careers and majors, build college lists, submit excellent applications, and make final college decisions. Our work, coupled with that of our Alumni Supports team, ensures that our graduates are able to persist in college and graduate with a 4-year degree.

“As a part of the first graduating class from Noble Street, I decided to come back and work at Noble to give to others the care and education that was afforded to me many years ago. Having worked with other organizations, none gave me the sense of belonging to a family like Noble has. Going to work each day is like coming home.”
