About 76 percent of high school graduates in Orange County last year went on to enroll in college, according to new figures released by the state.
The California Department of Education recently released the new College-Going Report, which features data showing college enrollment broken down by student group and postsecondary institutions at the state, county, district and school levels.
Statewide, about 66 percent of graduates from the Class of 2018 went on to college. All 15 Orange County districts that operate high schools had a college-going rate well above the state average.
The data categorizes college-going graduates by their enrollment in four-year colleges and universities, and community colleges. It also identifies students who enrolled in private colleges and universities, and those who attended out-of-state schools.
