To be prepared for college, careers, and life, all students need a rich variety of classroom and community experiences and supports. FourPoint helps districts and communities create and refine opportunity ecosystems, aligning and coordinating resources and programming to close opportunity and achievement gaps and ensure all young people are ready for life after graduation. Sometimes this work happens in schools, where we help leaders create productive and sustainable partnerships with community-based organizations. We also support communities by helping leaders develop systems of early learning and quality out-of-school time options.
Research proves that addressing students’ social, emotional, and academic needs is essential for their success. It also makes clear that engaged students are successful students and that working together, schools and community organizations can provide a rich array of options so that all children can find and pursue their passions. We meet our clients where they are and help them establish a broader set of student supports and opportunities so that all children reach their full potential.

We believe that close coordination of opportunities and supports is critical for secondary students who are facing decisions about life after high school. We have special expertise in helping helping K12, higher education, and workforce partners create a comprehensive set of supports for older youth – rigorous courses, career preparation programs, effective counseling and advising, and dual enrollment, internships, and other work-based learning and leadership opportunities.
Regardless of the entry point, we are committed to helping our clients tap school and community resources to deliver the kind of rigorous and relevant learning experiences that prepare students for success in college, career and life.
