“REACH Prep is probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me, coming in second only to the amazing parents I was blessed with. Like all REACH Prep students, I came from an underprivileged background and, after completing my additional education and training through REACH, was afforded the opportunity to go to a private school. Here's the thing about REACH Prep: it's not just that they have generous donors who pay for a better school for us; it's all of the other things that come along with that. REACH Prep gives us access to a life most of us never even knew existed.”
