What is American Graduate?

American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is public media’s long-term commitment to supporting community-based solutions to the dropout crisis. Supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), more than 80 public radio and television stations including Alabama Public Television have joined forces with over 1,000 partners and at-risk schools across 30 states.

In collaboration with our American Graduate community partners, Alabama Public Television's IQ Learning Network highlights, creates, supports, and sustains community-based initiatives that promote high school graduation in our state. The needs of our local communities continue to drive our American Graduate efforts, such as the "Prescription for Summer Reading" program and the GED Resource web page. Convening American Graduate community partners also connects organizations and ideas for a broader reach and increased impact. With backing from the State Superintendent, Dr. Tommy Bice, the “Stay in School Campaign,” part of APT’s first American Graduate grant, was relaunched in 2015 as the "Watch Inside Out" campaign. American Graduate partners have co-sponsored contests highlighting student voices such as the "How We Achieve Excellence in Our Schools"  video contest and the  "MLK Unity Breakfast"  essay contest.  APT continues to produce Electronic Field Trips featuring student reporters, with more than 2.5 million national/international students participating. In addition to these efforts, we have worked to highlight “Digital Innovators” and “American Graduate Champions” in our state.
