AT&T is supporting Citizen Schools’ expansion of its national 8th Grade Academy (8GA) program this fall with a $250,000 contribution through AT&T Aspire, the company’s signature education initiative. 

Launched 20 years ago, Citizen Schools is a national educational nonprofit focused on extending the learning day for high-need middle school students by providing direct instruction and support in key subjects, and project-based apprenticeships taught by volunteers from local businesses. 

Citizen Schools’ 8th Grade Academy program (8GA) is a bridge between middle school and high school, providing basic and real-world skills students need to transition successfully to high school and graduate. 

AT&T’s funding will support the 8GA program, including expansion as well as program evaluation and future strategy for reinforcing core academic skills, developing character strengths, and fostering positive mentor and peer relationships.
