The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between high school graduation rates and emancipation outcomes. Secondary data from the California Child Welfare Indicators Project (CCWIP) database was used to develop a quantitative study on related variables. Findings indicate that there was a significant relationship between high school completion and independent living program completion rates. The study also discovered that there was a significant relationship between high school completion and housing obtainment rates. Further, this study verified that there was a significant relationship between high school completion and permanency connection rates. The study can be helpful for those providing services to emancipated youth.
