Project Future Institute’s Outcomes
Since the first pilot program in June 2014, SELF™ has grown from reaching a few students in a successful pilot program to helping over 90 academically at-risk students* over the past two years. The outcomes of SELF™ have proven we can positively impact student attitudes, math skills, and academic performance.
Rising ninth graders* in June 2016, who attended the week-and-a-half SELF™ program (whose math accomplishments were well below grade level before SELF™ ), scored an average of 38% on a pre-SELF™ math test and an average of 80% on a post-SELF™ math test. This same group of students had a first semester average GPA of 2.04 while the average GPA for similarly qualified students who could have but did not attend SELF™ was 1.28. More recently, rising ninth graders* in June 2017, who attended the week-and-a-half SELF™ program, (whose math accomplishments were well below grade level before SELF™), scored an average of 32% on a pre-SELF™ math test and an average of 82% on a post-SELF™ math test.
“At-risk students” are defined as students who are below grade level in mathematics.
“Rising 9th graders” are students who will enter 9th grade at the start of the upcoming academic year.
