Preparing Atlanta Student-Athletes
Our academic mentoring program provides an ‘academic coach’ to work with student-athletes in 11 inner-city high schools. This academic coach serves as a mentor, advocate, counselor, teacher, coach and friend who works to assist student-athletes in maximizing their personal potential.
The academic coaches strive to keep the students in school, help them improve study habits, provide SAT and ACT test preparation resources, encourages their students to apply to college and helps them transition to college. With $150,000 committed to Atlanta Public Schools each year, Peach Bowl, Inc. is the only entity in the nation to fully fund a program like this for an entire school district.
