Project GRAD Houston Closes 

Graduation Gaps


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.
