The American Diploma Project (ADP) is an Achieve initiative created to ensure that all students graduate from high school prepared to face the challenges of work and college. The ADP Network includes 35 states dedicated to the same goal. ADP is designed to ensure that all states: align high school standards and assessments with the knowledge and skills required for success after high school; Require all graduates to take rigorous courses - aligned to college- and career-ready standards - that prepare them for life after high school; streamline the assessment system so that the tests students take in high school also can serve as placement tests for college and hiring for the workplace; develop reporting and accountability systems that value college and career readiness for all students.
