THE NEED IN METRO ATLANTA

Less than one in four ninth graders in Atlanta Public Schools is expected to graduate from college. Recognizing the commitment and progress made by many organizations that have been working for years in the Atlanta metro area, we are thrilled to join this community and bring a unique in-school, teacher-led model that prioritizes students that are not currently being served by other interventions.

COMMUNITY
COMMITMENT

OneGoal joins the Achieve Atlanta portfolio of organizations supporting Atlanta students. We will begin serving Fellows in Atlanta Public Schools in the fall of 2017, and soon after will expand to the surrounding metro areas, including Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Clayton.

“OneGoal’s demonstrated expertise in college access and persistence, and their results were so compelling that we knew we wanted them to come to Atlanta.”

Tina Fernandez
Executive Director

UNIQUE
MOMENT IN TIME

There is a tremendous coordinated effort from the municipal government, public school districts, post-secondary institutions, and the corporate community to improve college graduation rates. We are eager to engage with this community to leverage data and insights in pursuit of our shared commitment to college success for all.
