Delray Students First, an organization that focuses on helping economically disadvantaged students enter and complete college, is changing its name and its geographic focus.
Originally created to serve students in Delray Beach’s Village Academy and later Atlantic High School, the nonprofit organization will be expanding its college preparation program to Boca Raton High School as well as Boynton Beach High School.
It is also changing its name to Bound For College.
“We’re excited to be expanding our program to help students from low-income families in both Boca Raton and Boynton Beach get into a four-year college and complete their post-secondary education,” said Mark Sauer, founder and board president. “Our new name ties directly to our mission and recognizes our expansion into other communities.”
