After a very successful capital campaign, Reach for Excellence began construction to renovate a vacated space on the Marist School campus. After 14 years of operating out of a one room office, the new RFE space includes two offices, a lobby, conference room, storage area, and designated Reach for Excellence entrance. The new space will allow for a better system of organization and efficiency as we continue to meed the growing needs of Atlanta’s under-served middle school population.
