Over 40 years of improving educational opportunities for talented
young people of color, one scholar at a time

Guilford ABC offers academically talented girls of color from under-represented communities, where they lack access to quality educational experiences, the opportunity to attend a fine public high school and, as well, live in a caring community with a strong support system. Our driving goal is to provide them with A Better Chance to excel and compete effectively in colleges, universities and the workplace.

It does take a village to raise a child. Guilford ABC’s board, its host families, the town’s skilled high school faculty, merchants and service providers all contribute toward making this program possible. In turn, our scholars add immeasurably to the quality and diversity of life in this very special community.
