Review for Project Grad-Atlanta Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became aware of Project GRAD in 2003. I went on my first Walk For Success at South Atlanta High school. It was a chilly Saturday morning, as we knocked on the doors of ninth graders, introducing the opportunity to sign the GRAD scholarship covenant so they could earn the $4,000 GRAD Scholarship. Up and down Jonesboro Rd. we knocked on doors and stood in the living rooms of families encouraging the student and parent to sign the document. I was impressed then, but since then, I am much more familiar and I am hooked! Project GRAD is THE local leader in college readiness. Their program is unique because of their holistic attempt to provide students and their parents with college readiness. They do not select only the top students and their scholarships may be used at any accredited college around the nation. They serve a population that is primarily first generation college bound students and for many families GRAD is their first exposure to college.

Without question, Project GRAD Atlanta has helped the Atlanta Public Schools make an impact the needle on college awareness, readiness, and college enrollment.
