Abstract (Summary)

This project examined the college-going culture at David Starr Jordan High School, an urban high school in North Long Beach, California. Drawing from two conceptual frameworks, Joyce Epstein's six elements of school-family-community partnerships and Patricia McDonough's nine elements of a college:.going culture, a new conceptual framework was developed: school-family-community partnership collegegoing culture. This new conceptual framework emphasizes the three C's: (a) communication, (b) college-information, and (c) collaboration, bridging schoolfamily- community partnerships and college-going culture.

To increase the college-going rate at David Starr Jordan High School, two community events were implemented at the school utilizing this new conceptual framework-providing a link between theory and practice. As a result, the project helped build school-family-community alliance, disseminated college information to students and families to debunk myths about college-related options, and promoted David Starr Jordan High School as a safe and caring high school.
