On Thursday, February 4, 2021, Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools hosted our annual REACH Georgia Signing Day Ceremony at the Johnson High School Auditorium. Twelve SCCPSS middle school students and their parents took part in the ceremony committing them to fulfill the requirements of the REACH Scholars program in return for the promise of a scholarship to college.
REACH Georgia is a needs-based mentorship and scholarship program that begins in 8th grade. REACH Scholars are paired with a mentor and an academic coach through middle and high school. Scholars must maintain good grades (2.5 GPA), behavior and attendance through middle school and high school. Scholars who successfully complete the program and graduate from high school are awarded a $10,000 scholarship ($2,500/year) that can be used at any HOPE-eligible institution in Georgia. The scholarship is in addition to any other grant or scholarship the student receives.
Congratulations to these 2021-2022 REACH Scholars!
