* Estimated enrollment in out-of-state institutions of higher education was not available for some or all high schools within the county.

** These figures represent the number of additional students needed to enroll in institutions of postsecondary education to increase the school's college-going rate to that of the average of Southern Regional Education Board states and the United States as a whole. SREB data is from 2012 and national college-going rate data is from 2013, the most recent year these numbers are available.

Note: Estimates of enrollment in out-of-state higher education institutions are based on surveys of West Virginia high schools. Not all of the out-of-state higher education enrollment can be tracked; therefore, these figures will not exactly match nationally-published overall going rates for West Virginia.

Values in parentheses indicate the number of high school graduates enrolling in a postsecondary institution above the SREB or national average.
