Alabama GRIT – Graduate Ready. Impact Tomorrow.

GRIT means firmness of mind or spirit: unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger, indomitable spirit, and perseverance. GRIT is what everyone needs to be successful. School and REAL life depend on much more than learning quickly and easily. 

Alabama GRIT --- Graduate Ready. Impact Tomorrow., is a team of Alabama parents, educators, business leaders, military personnel, and other civic leaders who work together to ensure all of Alabama’s children have an opportunity to graduate from any of Alabama’s schools prepared for REAL LIFE– whether they are beginning college or a career. 

We work to:

  • Advocate for higher academic standards;
  • Foster honest community conversations about what we want Alabama students to achieve;
  • Promote policies and efforts that build on the gains our students are making;
  • And, serve as a window into what is really taking place inside Alabama’s classrooms.
