An Evaluation of How Science Leadership Academy Graduates and Preparedness for Postsecondary STEM Majors

Dates: 2011 - 2012

Research for Action (RFA) was commissioned by The Franklin Institute and Science Leadership Academy in the spring of 2011 to research how the first cohort of graduates from SLA fared as they entered postsecondary institutions. This study has a special focus on students’ participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) tracks. TFI and SLA were also interested in having RFA identify and document key elements of the SLA partnership school model to inform strategies for replication.
