Citizen Schools is a leading national nonprofit that partners with local schools to prepare urban middle school students for achievement and leadership in high school, college, the workforce, and civic life.

The Writing Program is the cornerstone of Eighth Grade Academy, Citizen Schools capstone year. Through the Writing Program, students receive personalized academic support, connect with a mentor from the Greater Boston community, and develop the skills they’ll need to successfully transition to high school next year.
