GRA helps young men make up high school credits and rediscover successes.

Young men make up a large portion of failing grades, disciplinary referrals, drop outs, and learning disability diagnoses. They don't plan to fail high school classes. Instead, they get derailed along the way by external factors and internal struggles. 


Traditional high school systems have a large class size, shrinking resources, and instruction that doesn't always meet individual needs. There's an urgency to guide these young men back to a successful high school career.
