Beyond 12 coaches walk beside students as they discover and explore their potential areas of interest. Beyond 12 believes that students are “creative, resourceful, and whole,” in the words of the strengths-based Co-Active Coaching framework on which our model is based; this means that students are capable of finding the answers to their challenges with the right resources, support, and guidance. Our coaches are full-time Beyond 12 employees who help students navigate key challenges of the college journey:
Beyond 12 coaches are also knowledgeable about campus resources and encourage students to meet regularly with your institution’s academic and financial aid advisors, counselors, mental health professionals, and other staff to discuss progress toward earning their degrees and support their wellness goals.
MyCoach is a customizable mobile app that keeps students on track toward completion and graduation. Our evidence-based “nudges” provide students with timely campus-specific reminders, translating essential college tasks into bite-sized, actionable, and easy-to-follow steps. Our content library includes engaging video-based modules featuring Beyond 12’s “near peer” coaches who guide students through tasks and milestones. Schools can also target information to different cohorts of students, such as first-years or veterans. Students can earn points for completing tasks like checking in with their advisor, engaging in orientation activities, and creating an education plan, which they can redeem for gift cards.
The foundation of Beyond 12’s coaching platform is a predictive and prescriptive analytics engine, powered by machine learning, that can not only predict students’ risk of dropping out but can also offer targeted interventions. We combine student data, coaching data, and institutional data to note which incoming students need support to persist through their second year, flag students who may stop out before the next term, suggest students’ likely engagement with coaching, and provide actionable insights about how best to help students succeed.Because we understand our students’ complex stories and needs, we not only avoid but also transcend historical bias and inequity by using students’ behavioral and attitudinal data (e.g. growth mindset, comfort with technology, access to support, etc.) instead of fixed indicators along with other information to offer compelling solutions that are tailored to their unique needs.
Our digital platform combines personalized coaching with powerful analytics to increase retention and amplify student power.

Organized around an evidence-based curriculum, our platform helps us identify and address the systemic and structural barriers students face before those challenges lead them to drop out. We offer a three-part solution:
Our inspirational coaches support college students virtually. Coaches are “near peers'' who understand firsthand students’ experiences, stories, and challenges. Beyond 12 coaches not only help students navigate the structural barriers that stand in the way of their success, they also help them strengthen their skills and habits.Read More
Our campus-customized mobile app, MyCoach, “nudges” students about academic and financial aid deadlines, guides them through critical activities, and rewards behaviors that are proven to lead to success. Over time, the app is strengthened further by data from the student, their coach, and their institution.Read More
Our coaching tools are tied to a back-end analytics engine that is powered by machine learning, which uses data from Beyond 12, your institution, and students’ own performance and progress to generate predictions of a student’s likelihood of re-enrolling the next term. While most other tools only predict risk, Beyond 12 provides actionable insights that can address students’ specific challenges.Read More
The transparency in our partnership, mutual values, and commitment results in more students completing a postsecondary credential, with less debt and more capacity to navigate barriers to their success.
