  • Mission:
  • College Bound's mission is to provide academic programs and services that prepare students for admission into and graduation from four-year institutions of higher education.

  • History:
  • Dismayed at the lack of college guidance offered to many disadvantaged high school seniors, Johnnie and Andy Savoy started College Bound, in December 1990, as a source of valuable information and instruction for other local parents. College Bound’s first meetings concentrated on helping 39 underserved students and their parents successfully navigate the complicated process of academically preparing for and gaining admission into college. Now 19 years later, College Bound has graduated over 650 high school students and expanded its numerous programs and services to include Saturday School enrichment, tutorial services, career awareness academies, summer enrichment opportunities, SAT preparation, college application assistance, college retention services, and scholarships. The mission of College Bound is to provide academic programs and services that prepare students for admission into and graduation from four-year institutions of higher education. As a result of relationships with families, school districts, and local and national colleges/universities, College Bound has a documented track record of success that includes the following:

    • College Bound students are accepted into Ivy League and top-tier colleges and universities such as UPenn, Harvard, Dartmouth, Cornell, Yale, Brown, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, UCLA, UCB, Spelman, Xavier, Tufts, USC, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
    • Throughout its history, College Bound has been instrumental in acquiring more than $20 million in academic scholarships for its students.
    • Over 80% of all College Bound graduates obtain their undergraduate degrees within 4-6 years, nearly twice the national rate for African American collegiate students.
    • Over 60% of its college graduates attend Graduate or Professional Schools.
    • College Bound alumni hold positions with notable companies such as BP America, Morgan Stanley, Microsoft, ABC Entertainment, The Boeing Company, Nike, and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
