The Great Schools Partnership is the primary private-sector supporter of Project GRAD Knoxville. The goals of Project GRAD are to increase academic achievement, high school graduation rates, the number of students attending college, and aiding students in their college success. Not only has GRAD helped increase college attendance by 50 percent at Fulton and Austin-East High Schools, their post secondary completion rate is 40 percent (the national average for the same demographic of students is less than 10 percent).
