ABACUS: Advancing Post-secondary Access

ABACUS focuses on improving the academic, community and environmental factors that most directly affect a student’s likelihood of continuing his or her education.  The ABACUS goal is to improve high-school graduation rates and access to post-secondary education, including trades and apprenticeship opportunities, by focusing on the “middle-school years”:  Grades 6, 7, 8 and transition to 9.

Please note there will not be an open call for ABACUS applications for 2017-18
