Believe. Expect. Achieve.
Atlanta’s students have dreams: for their futures, their families, and their careers. We’re here to support those students. See how we’re doing this.
Achieve Atlanta and our College Access partners deliver hands-on help to APS students as they chart their paths to college. We have a formal relationship with Atlanta Public Schools and provide strategic, operational, and financial support to offer a district-wide college advising program that serves all APS juniors and seniors.
As we work to increase the number of Atlanta Public Schools students graduating from college, we are partnering with postsecondary institutions and college success experts to offer direct support and advising services to students.

The Achieve Atlanta Scholarship is a need-based award designed to support APS students pursuing various postsecondary paths after high school. When combined with other possible sources of financial aid, the Achieve Atlanta Scholarship should greatly reduce the need for students and families to take out high-interest, private loans to pay for school. The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is an important part of Achieve Atlanta’s broader effort to dramatically increase the number of APS students who earn a postsecondary degree or credential.
