Our Approach

We address the college completion challenge at its root by acting as a data and service bridge between K-12 and higher education. We advance our mission through 3 core activities: TRACK , CONNECT, and COACH. All three activities are linked to a data analytics engine that provides rich insights to education administrators to help them better prepare and support their students for college success.


Alumni Tracker for high schools and college success programs

Comprehensive Profile

Manage all alumni data, including case notes, in one place through a comprehensive alumni profile

Custom Dashboards & Reports

Measure program effectiveness and identify students most in need of support with dashboards and customized reports

Consolidated Communication

Communicate easily with alumni through text, email, and Facebook


MyCoach Mobile App (Android and iOS) for college students, college access and success programs, and colleges

Simplified Essentials

Through an interactive, campus-specific checklist augmented by automated “nudges” and badges, MyCoach translates essential college tasks into bite-sized, actionable, and easy-to-follow steps.

Purposeful Reflection

MyCoach generates short reflection quizzes, based on Beyond 12’s successful coaching curriculum that allow students to reflect on their skills, challenges, and experiences, and create relevant and meaningful goals.

Social Inspiration

Through lightweight weekly prompts, MyCoach allows students to inspire and be inspired by sharing tips and experiences with other students in an easily browsable way.


Personalized Coaching Service for college students, college success programs, and colleges

Near Peer

Personalized coaching for students from “near peers” – recent college graduates who understand what they’re going through because they’ve been through it


Regular outreach tailored to students’ own communication preferences and needs – via phone, Skype, Google hangout, email, text message, and social media


Expert guidance from individuals who know how to motivate and inspire students to succeed, starting the summer after their senior year of high school
