Our Success

Student with copybookSince the program’s launch in 2012, the REACH Georgia Program has more than 3,600 students participating and serves all 180 school systems in the state.

We serve students living in low-income households in every school system across the state. Our current scholar demographics:

African American 46%
White 28%
Hispanic/Latino 21%
Asian/Pacific Islander 5%

REACH Scholars have committed to follow a rigorous educational path to be eligible to receive their scholarships upon graduation. They are currently minding the ABCs of nationally recognized early success indicators which include:

  • Attending school regularly
  • Maintaining good behavior
  • Preparing to succeed in post-secondary school as reflected in good course performance

 

Additionally, our scholars have experienced the power of advocacy in meeting regularly with their mentor and academic coach.

To date, REACH Georgia has graduated five classes of high school seniors. The graduating classes of 2017~2021 consist of over 500 scholars. These students have had an average final GPA of 3.4 and 80% of the scholars were eligible to receive either the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship in addition to the REACH Georgia Scholarship.
