What We Do

Our Model

Project GRAD is one of the only college access organizations in the nation supporting students from middle school through college graduation. Our staff works in eight public middle and high schools, championing the college aspirations of all 10,000 students while working one-on-one with 1,500 students and families providing the tools, knowledge, and programs needed to ensure college success.

The Project GRAD model is based on four inter-connected strategies that research indicates leads to college success:

  • Academic Enrichment¬†
  • Parent Engagement
  • College Awareness, Readiness, and Retention
  • Community Partnerships
