Support PHA

Secure Our Students' Bright Futures
At PHA, we are forever steadfast in our mission to prepare each student for success in college. For our uniquely diverse, underserved students, a college degree is life-changing, pivotal to the trajectory of their lives beyond PHA. At a time when college enrollment is dropping, and the bright futures of our scholars are at stake, we need your support more than ever.
Throughout our nearly 30-year rich and impactful history, we have deliberately designed and cultivated an effective approach to college preparation and alumni support (see below) that not only ensures our students are able to access the college that is right for them, but that our alumni also go on to successfully graduate and enter their careers prepared to become the leaders of tomorrow. 
Our programs have yielded outstanding results, including a 92% average college enrollment rate over the last five years (4th highest state-wide) and a 72% college graduation rate, significantly outpacing the 59% national average.
However, there is still much work to be done. Post-pandemic, and on the heels of the affirmative action decision, we are seeing a decline in college enrollment especially for historically underrepresented students, even while the need for postsecondary credentials remains greater than ever. Please support us as we continue to effectively guide and nurture our students on their journeys to college, career, and life beyond.

Allison D.“Out of all the amazing opportunities presented to me during my time at PHA, I cherish leading "Creative PHA," a club focused on promoting school spirit, spreading awareness about different cultures, and highlighting their beauty. This year, I’m taking dual enrollment classes at Bunker Hill [Community College], which has showed me the importance of seizing every opportunity and embracing new challenges.


Now, after graduating, I plan to attend college and major in civil engineering, with the goal of earning a master's degree. Given the rigor of my classes and the flexibility I had, I feel well-prepared for the workload and schedule changes that come with college.”  - Allison D., PHA Senior
