We’re working every day to ensure that more of our students have access to college and succeed once they get there.
Our programs supplement the academic preparation students receive with the financial and social/emotional supports they need. The strategies we pursue are rooted in best practice and focus on what works to produce the best college access and college persistence outcomes.
We provide high school students with hands-on assistance to complete the necessary steps to enroll in college including: researching college options, completing applications, understanding and applying for financial aid, and starting the transition from high school to life at college.
The Achieve Atlanta Scholarship
The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is a need-based award designed to support APS students pursuing various post-secondary 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 post-secondary degree or credential.
