It is our firm belief that for students to achieve, they must start by actually seeing the opportunities that exist. Beginning in 9th grade, we take students on college trips to visit campuses in the Atlanta area and far beyond. Once our students are on campus, we do more than just learn facts about the school -- we figure out whether or not each institution "feels right." We ensure that students find the right fit and understand the components that make colleges strong matches for them as individuals.


Starting in 9th grade, our students are given the opportunity to visit a variety of colleges in the Metro-Atlanta area. They spend time at technical schools, community colleges, four-year schools, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Predominantly White Institutions, large public universities, liberal arts colleges, women's colleges and co-ed institutions. Past visits have included:

Emory, Morehouse, Spelman, Georgia Tech, UGA, Georgia Piedmont Technical College, Georgia State, Clayton State, West Georgia and many others

In 11th grade, our students are given several opportunities to visit colleges across the state and across the nation. On each campus we make sure to go beyond merely taking a tour -- we meet with our alums (who are current students), network with admissions and financial aid personnel, eat in dining halls and sit in on classes. Ultimately, our students learn what it would mean for them to be college students on campus and use this experience to find the right fit. Here's a selection of the dozens of colleges we've visited:

Howard, George Washington, Columbia, Barnard, Lehigh, Lafayette, Brandeis, Tufts, Skidmore, Union, Cornell, Syracuse, UNC, Duke and many others
