“Affording Every Benton Harbor Promise Zone Student a Post-Secondary Education… Preparing Students for Life After High School”


Every child in our community deserves a good education. Unfortunately, too many of them can’t attend a post-secondary institution because they don’t have the money or resources to make it a reality. Now we can ensure all our children can reach their full potential.

Whatever you decide to do in life, you’ll have the education you need to help get you there, and that’s a promise. The Benton Harbor Promise pays your tuition and fees for two years at any accredited community college or trade/vocational school in Michigan where you’re accepted. As long as you keep your grades up and stay in school, you can feel confident that your college education will be taken care of.

The Benton Harbor Promise is committed to making sure you’re prepared, enter and succeed in your post secondary educational journey.
