Project GRAD Atlanta GA
The mission of Project GRAD Atlanta is to ensure a quality public education for all students in economically disadvantaged communities so that high school graduation rates increase and graduates are prepared to enter and be successful in college. Project GRAD is a comprehensive, cost-effective program with a record of improving the academic achievement of students from low-income backgrounds. Project GRAD works with the most disadvantaged public schools in each city where it operates. In our original cluster of schools, we have increased the number of high school graduates by 94%, raised the number of students going to college by 400%, and generated a college completion rate 70% above the national average.
