"Promise seeks to enroll all first graders in 2018!"

"By now you may have heard about Promise Porter County, a truly exciting endeavor being undertaken in Porter County.The Promise seeks to enroll all first graders in the counties seven school corporations in a CollegeChoice 529 college savings account, introduce an age appropriate college and career curriculum, and arrange a visit to Valparaiso University for a special day called “Walk Into My Future.” Research shows that students with a college savings account in their name are four times more likely to attend college than those without an account. In addition, these students tend to have better attendance and test scores than students without a college savings plan. The goal of Promise Porter County, generously supported by state and local agencies and community partners, is to give our students HOPE. HOPE for post-secondary education, that they will be better able to afford school. And HOPE, that they will be more successful as they move past high school!"
