Project GRAD Houston Closes
Project GRAD Houston
(GRAD) works with high schoolers to promote college and career readiness across the Houston area. The program does this by partnering with
K-12, Community, and Higher Education institutions.
"Our research tells us that students will point to a person and their relationship with that individual as making a significant contribution to their ability to stay on track or to get past a specific barrier. GRAD might fill this role directly or indirectly, which is why our partnerships within a college or university can be so important." said President and CEO, Ann Stiles.
Project GRAD has worked diligently on closing the gaps in four different college readiness areas: aspirations/access, awareness, experience, and college completion.
