The EL Education model prepares all students for college and career success by providing a college-bound curriculum with high expectations for all students, fostering a schoolwide college- and career-bound culture, and setting up structures that allow time for the post-graduation search and application process. EL Education students work with their heads, hearts, and hands. Creating high-quality work, including finished, professional-looking products, is an essential part of core and enrichment courses, one that prepares all students for college and careers.

A college-bound curriculum includes content area knowledge and skills, such as literature and calculus; academic research and writing skills; and technology literacy. It also includes Habits of Scholarship, such as time management and persistence toward excellence and “college knowledge” about such things as college admissions, financial aid requirements, and the norms and expectations of college life. Paving the way for college and careers begins in the primary years and culminates with intensive focus in the high school years. 

EL Education recognizes that there may be particular students for whom entering college may not be the optimal path. Nevertheless school leaders and teachers prepare all students to get accepted to college so that they have a choice now and the confidence to re-apply in the future if college is the right option.
