Our Impact

The Problem

Our neighborhood is characterized by violence and a lack of resources. This is most evident in the lack of educational opportunities available to our young people.

Majority of students in Westside Atlanta are unprepared for college with 3 out of 4 schools in the area are graded as chronically failing. Most youth arrive at BF Academy 3 to 4 levels below grade level.
