College Success

The first two Achieve Atlanta cohorts that enrolled in University System of Georgia (USG) institutions graduated at the same rate as all students at those institutions, regardless of income status.


In addition to graduating at rates similar to peers of all income levels, Achieve Atlanta Scholars tend to graduate with less debt, in many cases well below the state average. Nearly half of graduates we surveyed had debt below $10k.
