Reach for Excellence prepares students for challenging college-prep programs and high schools of their choice. The program requires hard work, commitment, and discipline, but the rewards can last a lifetime. Reach sets its students on the right path for success in high school and beyond.
Reach students learn from adults who are caring mentors and they are surrounded by friends who share their desire to succeed.
Reach for Excellence students attend middle schools throughout the Metro Atlanta area. They are ready to commit to three years of rigorous academics and leadership training, and they demonstrate the potential to achieve academically and the determination to succeed in life.
Though Reach students are academically talented, they need not be from gifted programs in their middle schools. However, Reach for Excellence is not a remedial program.
In order to be eligible for the program, students must come from households with incomes of no more than $50,000 per year.
