Since 2009, Parkdale Project Read has offered our award-winning Academic Upgrading (AU) Program to youth (ages 16-29) and adults who have not completed high school. We provide small group learning and one-to-one instruction. Students complete the curriculum at their own pace.
Graduates from our program have successfully transitioned to post-secondary education (college, university, specialized programs), apprenticeship training, and employment in the field of their choice.

In 2018, Academic Upgrading Program graduate, William Chemno was the first recipient of the David Michael Eminess Memorial Scholarship. This award is named for a beloved AU Program student, who was on his way to completing his studies when he tragically lost his life to gun violence in 2016. Past and present AU Instructors spoke about David’s impact on the community and how William reflects those values.
