Student Success

Helping Students Thrive

Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. United Way is working to ensure every Central Alabama student will graduate high school prepared for college, career, and life.

Our priorities include:

  • Expanding access to high quality Pre-K
  • Providing resources to meet students’ basic needs
  • Supporting students, schools and families in increasing academic proficiency
  • Helping students pursue post-secondary degrees and credentials for workforce success

We work with other community partners to advance a common agenda for educational success in our community so students can achieve greater outcomes.
