The mission of Project GRAD USA is to ensure a quality, public-school education for all at-risk children in economically disadvantaged communities. Doing so means high-school graduation rates increase, and graduates are prepared to enter and be successful in college.
Project GRAD USA is one of the nation’s largest college-access programs for students in low-income areas, opening the doors to college with academic, community, and financial assistance. We currently serve 124,000 students in more than 200 schools nationally - 92% of these students are ethnic minorities and over 87% are eligible for free or reduced-priced lunch. In our longest served schools, GRAD students are completing college at a rate 92% above the national average for students from similar backgrounds. Today we are taking the core GRAD model forward into a new space, restarting America’s lowest-performing schools by setting new high and high-tech expectations. Through “GRAD Restart Academies,” GRAD will deliver its proven, college-prep program in an exciting partnership with one of the nation’s most successful charter school networks, KIPP Academies. The mission of GRAD Restart Academies is to restart failing K-12 public schools in historically underachieving areas of the United States.
