High-quality public education, a hallmark of thriving economies and communities, is a top priority for New Hampshire’s education, business, and industry leaders. Never before has there been such significant demand for students to graduate high school fully prepared for college, careers, and life.

With this knowledge, a diverse group of leaders and practitioners from the business, industry, K-12, philanthropy, and higher education sectors have come together to strengthen the college and career readiness effort in NH and ensure that our young people experience a rigorous and meaningful K-12 education.

The NH Alliance for College and Career Readiness engages with all NH citizens to gather local insights, experiences, and innovations to inform systems, research, and analysis that will lead to the implementation of programs and practices that will allow our young people to thrive.
