Empowering Kids

The Sandy Springs Mission is the only nonprofit in the community to provide ongoing academic support to our students throughout their educational experience, beginning in 1st grade.

At the Sandy Springs Mission, we envision a community where all educationally at-risk students graduate from high school empowered with the life skills necessary to make wise decisions in life.  Whether they pursue higher education or go directly to work, graduates of the Mission will be equipped with the tools they need to be successful.

Currently, less than half of the Hispanic students enrolled at Riverwood High School will graduate.  However, over 95% of the students in the Mission’s programs will earn their diplomas – most the first in their families to do so.  This spring we celebrated our largest graduating class yet with 22 students receiving diplomas. 

How do we achieve such a high rate of success? We start early and walk with our students from 1st-12th grade.  We partner with our parents helping them navigate the school system  - an experience many of our parents have never had before.   And, we have strong relationships with school administrators and teachers at Lake Forest and High Point elementary schools, Ridgeview Middle School and Riverwood High School. 

Once a school has recommended a child for the Mission, each child and their family receives unique support that continues throughout their educational experience.
