How The Promise works to create quality schools in the El Dorado School District

The El Dorado Promise, which was established and funded by the Murphy Oil Corporation, provides free college tuition for EHS graduates who meet relatively easy-to-obtain requirements.

This scholarship program has had a profound impact on the school district, from boosting the El Dorado School District graduation rate to increasing enrollment and the percentage of students that have gone on to college.

Students now come up through the ranks of the El Dorado School District with the idea of going to college when they graduate high school, and educators have focused on equipping them with the tools needed to thrive in higher education.
