An Achievable Dream utilizes a unique and holistic Social, Academic, and Moral Education curriculum – we call it SAME. This framework enhances the public school’s curriculum by adding numerous opportunities, experiences, and wrap-around services that put our students on a level playing field to become everything they’ve ever dreamed of in college, their careers, and their lives. The SAME framework allows schools implementing our program to support the whole child, as well as their family. And as we know, social and emotional factors are key to a child’s academic success. Our students receive extended learning time, a series of character-development classes like Etiquette and Conflict Resolution, soft-skill building activities, college prep and workforce-readiness programs, uniforms, clubs, field trips, and more. To help students prepare for success in the classroom as well as in life, students in sixth grade and up participate in our “What It Takes” workforce-development program. Our students work with volunteers from partner corporations on workforce-readiness skills like resume writing, professional communication, and job interviews. We go above and beyond academics to provide a variety of wrap-around services like free wellness centers, medical clinics, food and hygiene supplies, and mental health support. An Achievable Dream is committed to serving the whole child and ensuring their success regardless of the challenges they may face. Our focus at all grade levels is that attending college, a trade school, joining the military, or entering the workforce is a desirable and attainable goal, and our innovative program helps ensure all students reach those goals. Throughout everything we do at An Achievable Dream, our culture provides the foundation. We foster an environment of high expectations and strong emphasis on relationships, where our students are more than just pupils – they are family. We will do whatever it takes to ensure our students succeed.
