Thanks to the generous program support from the AT&T Foundation, we launched our summer Precollegiate initiative at The University of Georgia and The University of Alabama in 2011.
During this innovative program High School students, currently in foster care attend a week long summer pre-college experience on the campuses of our partner schools. Students live in dorms and meet with college students, professors and admissions officers. This program stresses the importance of academic excellence and high school graduation. In 2016 students may apply to our programs. All program costs are provided by our generous presenting program sponsors the AT&T Foundation, Wilmington Trust and the Amerigroup Foundation.
