Since the program’s launch in 2012, the REACH Georgia Program has nearly 2,400 students participating and serves 154 school systems. The program’s growth and expansion plan is for all 180 Georgia school systems to join the network and over 3,000 students to be enrolled in REACH Georgia by Academic Year 2020-2021.
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 four classes of high school seniors. The graduating classes of 2017~2020 consist of 278 scholars. These students have had an average final GPA of 3.3 and 71% of the scholars were eligible to receive either the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship in addition to the REACH Georgia Scholarship.
