Principal's Message

Welcome to Graduates Within Reach Academy’s website,

I strongly believe in students’ growth and achievement.  Therefore, I do my best to ensure that the students are safe, the teachers are providing quality instruction and the building is clean and orderly.  The students are ushered to excel.  We are a small school but prepared for the task at hand.

The growth of the students attending the Graduates Within Reach Academy is important academically and behaviorally. It is the responsibility of the entire staff to ensure that each student individually return to their home school with 95% attendance, a D+ or above average and a much improved behavior. We use conflict resolution, practicing good judgment, taking responsibility for actions, etc. to rectify students’ behavior for the decreasing of our retention rate.

Sincerely yours,

Eddie Allen, Principal
