Student Success MEET GABBY

Gabriela was enrolled in Agape programs from kindergarten through twelfth grade. She applied and was accepted to 18 colleges and universities. She did this all while keeping a part- time job, continuing her involvement in orchestra, and keeping all of her grades above 85 percent or better.

“Agape has given me the opportunity to grow up with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. I was able to create a second family through Agape and have something to look forward to at the end of the day. Agape helped me achieve things I thought were unattainable.”

Gabriela received a full ride scholarship to Eastern Connecticut State University, where she began as a freshman during the fall of 2022.
