Mission Statement

The mission of Project GRAD is to ensure a quality public education for all students in economically disadvantaged communities so that high school and college graduation rates increase.

Description

Project GRAD (GRAD) is a non-profit education reform model serving 134,000 economically disadvantaged youth in 213 schools across the nation. Over 90% of GRAD students are low-income and 91% are minority. GRAD has a proven track record nationwide in increasing high school graduation and college attendance rates for low-income students. The national Project GRAD model has grown from a scholarship program which began in partnership with Houston Independent School District in 1989.

Today, Project GRAD Houston is at work in five feeder patterns of Houston ISD, serving 66 schools and over 45,000 children -- 22.98% of the school district's total school population and approximately 24% of its total at-risk population.
