PVCC "Market Share" of Selected High Schools: Graduating Class of 1987. Research Report Number 8-88.
Head, Ronald B.
In 1988, a study was conducted at Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) to determine the number and proportion of 1987 graduates from eight local public high schools who enrolled at PVCC in 1987-88 (i.e., the market share) and compare results with figures for previous years. Study findings included the following: (1) PVCC enrolled over 20% of all 1987 graduates from three local high schools, and just under 20% from a fourth; (2) 447 PVCC students had graduated from high school in 1987 (including in- and out-of-district and out-of-state); 58.8% of them were attending college full time and 67.3% had graduated from one of the high schools within PVCC's service region; (3) PVCC enrolled a slightly higher percentage of the female high school graduates (20.4%) than the male (17.8%); (4) the high schools graduated 9.7% fewer students in 1987 than in 1986; (5) market share figures for black high school graduates were much lower than those for either white students or other minority students; and (6) market share figures, as well as the number of service region graduates enrolling at PVCC, have continued to climb since the sharp decline reported between 1983-84 and 1984-85.
