Achieving the Dream College

Helping students be successful and helping build a quality workforce has been Grayson College’s role in our region for nearly five decades.  Our services, programs, and processes have contributed to an environment for student success, and we have much to celebrate. With Student Success by the Numbers (SSBTN) we began to create a culture of data and evidence to guide our thoughts on how to improve students’ completion and persistence rates. Seeing the positive influence of SSBTN, it is time for Grayson College to evolve into an institution that has Student Success at the heart of every decision and action. By joining Achieving the Dream, we will embark on a multi-year journey that transforms the way we interact with, support, and teach our students while they achieve their educational goals.
