10 Years Later..our Partnership Continues
2012 marks RE’s 10th year in partnership with Breakthrough Atlanta, a tuition-free program that works with middle school children with a six-week academic summer program for rising 7th and 8th graders that encourages academic success. We are proud to announce that 8 RE students that attend Kennedy Middle School have been accepted and will plunge into the challenge of using their summer time off, as time on, in preparation for the upcoming school year. In addition, throughout the school year, the students meet up for Saturday workshops throughout the year that focus on academic empowerment, preparing them for transitioning into high school and helping the high school students prepare for college. Beginning in January our students started their application process which consisted of two essays, an extensive application and several short answers questions. In the end, each student had to participate in an interview at the Breakthrough Atlanta offices at the Lovett School. To prepare RE students for these critical interviews, staff members held mock interviews with them one week prior to their big day. And now we are proud to introduce our new class of BA students: DaeJour, Daylon, Kel'vadiea, Markala, Montravious, Nayya, Renard, and Tionne for their admission into this wonderful opportunity and we know that this summer they will excel!
