Abstract This paper assesses the effects of post-secondary education on college success by examining a large detailed cross-sectional dataset of students from the U.S. Naval Academy. We find that students who have attended a pre-college program tend to graduate at higher rates than comparable students entering directly from high school but perform at lower levels academically overall.
