Achieve opens a world of possibilities to underserved, low-income high school students by providing access to a quality education including cultural, career and community service experiences. The goal of achieve is to produce successful citizens who will, in turn, give back to the community.
To prepare students academically and socially for college and for life. We give the students the tools, the confidence, and the motivation to take positive risks, including leaving home and the state to go away to college. Ultimately, we would like all of our students to be able to get the financial aid needed to attend a four-year college far from home.
