Proven Impact

Our graduates are hired with average starting wages of $30/hour, over four times the federal minimum wage.

STEM positions pay more than non-STEM roles by 12-30% across all levels of education.6

Employers including Lawrence Livermore National Lab, NASA Goddard, and Tesla have adapted the STEM Core as the basis of their new recruitment strategy.
