How We Impact the Community
We help Napa Valley students from low-income backgrounds realize their college dreams and positively impact their communities and the world. 10,000 Degrees supports 12,000+ students and their families annually, including 1,000 Napa Valley students, get to, and through, college with needs-based, renewable scholarships, and personalized support.
We’re equity-focused, student-centered, and strength-based: We believe in the great potential of all students and have no GPA or test score requirement to participate. Undocumented students are welcome. Our near-peer Fellows share similar backgrounds with our students and provide both on-campus and virtual support.
We also help Napa Valley College students transfer to and succeed at 4-year universities. Our community college students transfer at 3x the national average. Our support continues beyond baccalaureate attainment to helping with career and graduate school readiness. 100% of students come from low-income backgrounds, 89% are students of color, 85% are first gen. Over 80% graduate with a bachelor’s degree!
