Acerca de

Communities In Schools of Atlanta is an award-winning dropout prevention organization that was established in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972. What began in the basement of a modest home in the Grant Park community is now the nation’s largest dropout prevention network with a proven track record of positively impacting graduation rates. 

 

Communities In Schools of Atlanta’s mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children’s unmet needs, we provide the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning. Communities in Schools of Atlanta empowered 30,000 students during the 2017-2018 school year, and 4,500 of those students received intensive individualized support. Ninety-two percent of our case load students stayed in school, and 92% were promoted or graduated. We are currently serving four school districts; Atlanta Public Schools and Fulton, DeKalb and Clayton County schools.
