It is the purpose of this study (1) to determine to what extent the Scholastic program of the Anderson High School, Austin, Texas, has been of value to the graduates and drop-outs in providing the incentive for individual students to become aware of abilities, desires, interests, needs and patterns of life and conduct; (2) to propose a vocational guidance program for Anderson High School so as to provide for these desires, interests, needs, et cetera, and (3) to find out if the school has helped these students meet their needs.

This study was to include a total of 338 students, 210 graduates and 128 drop-outs; but due to the emigration of the students that was brought about as a result of the war, it was limited to 101 students. These in turn were students who had been out of school one, three, and five years respectively. It was believed that these would represent a fair sampling of the entire group.
