This study examines high school characteristics that influence high school graduates to be college-ready. The analysis used longitudinal data from a nationally representative sample of eighth grade students. Findings indicate that there should be an increase in academic rigor and higher expectations, greater emphasis on students being continuously enrolled in mathematics courses throughout high school, and completion of senior year mathematics homework out of school all contribute a college-ready graduate.
