Double the Numbers
The Double the Numbers (DTN) coalition represents an unprecedented commitment by community leaders to ensure that many more DC students succeed in college. Specifically, starting with students who entered 9th grade in September 2006, we hope to double the numbers of 9th graders who finish high school within five years, enroll in college, and graduate from college in a timely fashion; currently, only 9 percent of our students do so, less than half the national average. Double the Numbers is a membership-driven coalition. The DC College Success Foundation handles many administrative functions.
