National College Enrollment Declines, CSHS Not Affected

Oct 21, 2014 01:47PM ● Published by Dia

Recently released U.S. Census Bureau data suggests a decline in the nation’s college enrollment for the second year in a row. Similar data from the Census Bureau in the past few years has also indicated that the average national high school graduation rate is a little more than 80 percent. In the same study, it was determined that a large part of the decline took place in two-year college enrollment. These community, or junior, colleges experienced a 10 percent decline in enrollment from 2012 to 2013, while enrollment at four-year colleges grew slightly (1 percent).

Carroll Senior High School in Southlake boasts a 99 percent graduation rate, and 98.5 percent of CSHS seniors are college-bound. Southlake was recently recognized by Newsweek as one of the top ranking schools in the United States —coming in at No. 80 —on a list that included more than 750 high schools in the nation. Factors such as graduation rates and standardized test scores were taken into consideration when determining rank.
