Since 2005, Access has partnered with urban middle schools to propel students into high school and onto college and career success. Ninety-seven percent of our students are minorities and 94 percent qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Due to the generosity of our donors, our students’ academic drive, and our program’s 11-year commitment to enrichment, guidance counseling, and scholarships, 99 percent of our students have been accepted to private, college-prep high schools; 98 percent graduate from high school on-time; and 96 percent are accepted to colleges, universities, or other post-secondary institutions.
