What is Achieve Atlanta?

Achieve Atlanta and our College Access partners deliver hands-on help to APS students as they chart their paths to college. Through a formal relationship with Atlanta Public Schools, we provide strategic, operational, and financial support, as well as a district-wide college advising program that serves all juniors and seniors.

As we work to increase the number of Atlanta Public Schools students graduating from college, we are partnering with postsecondary institutions and college success experts who provide direct support and advising services to students.
