Access ASU has announced the start of WeGrad, a program that provides courses to help support families prepare their students for college.
The digital course is “a self-paced experience” delivered through SMS text messaging and WhatsApp and is available in both English and Spanish.
For 17 years, according to a release, WeGrad has been “the go-to program for elevating academic success for more than 70,000 K-12 students and families.”
Grant funding through 2024 allows families with middle school and high school students to access the program digitally for free.
Access ASU is a K-12 outreach division at Arizona State University “dedicated to increasing access to higher education and preparing Arizona students for success,” the release stated.
“WeGrad equips families from diverse backgrounds with the essential tools to ensure their child's academic success. Now, more Arizonans than ever before have access to this incredible resource,” said Alex Perilla, director of family engagement at Access ASU.
