Program Description

The Gladys P. Todd Academy program is designed for underserved high school students in the City of Fredericksburg and the county of Spotsylvania to increase college preparation and completion at least through an associate degree at Germanna, concurrent with a high school diploma.

The program will also provide support for selected middle school students to succeed in their pre-college performance in middle and high schools through mentoring, coaching, and academic and cultural enrichment activities.

Underserved student populations as defined for this program include first-generation college students with financial need. Tuition, fees, books and program costs will be supported by the Sunshine Lady Foundation and the Germanna Community College Foundation along with community partners. Volunteers will be solicited to serve as mentors, coaches, and chaperones.
