SFUSD wants every student to be ready to succeed in the 21st century, which includes providing opportunities for students to learn about and apply to colleges and universities. In past years SFUSD students accepted to an array of HBCUs have graduated and returned to San Francisco to work as teachers, social workers, probation officers, scientists, computer developers and businesspersons.
