UBMS boasts a 93% retention rate of all high school students served. To date, 99% of UBMS students have graduated from high school. CSS UBMS students go on to attend a wide variety of post secondary institutions. The College of St. Scholastica is one of only 47 postsecondary institutions nationwide with at least five TRiO Programs on campus.
