Benton Harbor Promise
The Benton Harbor Promise launched in 2011 with a mission to help all students in the greater Benton Harbor area achieve a post-secondary education. The Benton Harbor Promise realizes that every student regardless of financial means should have the opportunity to earn post-secondary credentials. The program provides full tuition and mandatory fees at any accredited community college or Career Technical school in Michigan where the student is accepted.
The program also offers various opportunities for students through high school programs, counseling and career guidance, and work internships throughout the post secondary education experience.
Affording every Benton Harbor Promise Zone a post secondary education is the vision of the Benton Harbor Promise because we believe that every child in our community deserves the type of education that will prepare them for life after high school.
