The Arkadelphia Promise

The Arkadelphia Promise program invests over $500,000 per year in scholarships annually and provides a better future for the students in Arkadelphia. The Arkadelphia Promise helps send Arkadelphia students to college at an amazing rate of 74% of all graduates. Our students go on to pursue 2-year and 4-year degrees at about 25% higher than the state average of 49%!

Arkadelphia students are also “sticking” in college. The freshman-to-sophomore retention rate is some of the best around. Arkadelphia Promise scholarship recipients from the Arkadelphia High School class of 2021 recorded the highest freshman-to-sophomore retention rate in the history of the scholarship program dating back to 2011.

Numbers show that 84.4% of AHS graduates who entered college as freshmen in the fall of 2021 returned for their sophomore year in 2022-23. That is 16 percentage points above the national average of 68% and 14 points over the Arkansas average of 70%. In the 11-year history of the Arkadelphia Promise, the retention rate is around an average of 77%.
