Since the program’s launch in 2012, the REACH Georgia Program has nearly 1,800 students participating and serves 134 school systems. The program’s growth and expansion plan is for all 180 Georgia school systems and over 3,000 students to participate by the 2020-2021 academic year.
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 two classes of seniors. The graduating classes of 2017 & 2018 consisted of 49 scholars. These scholars had an average GPA of 3.3 and 37 of the 49 scholars are eligible to receive either the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship in addition to the REACH Georgia Scholarship.
