A Gala Debut for REACH

TC's 125th Anniversary Gala celebration was the official coming-out party for REACH (Raising Educational Achievement Coalition of Harlem), the new name for the College's partnership with six local pre-K–12 Harlem public schools. REACH is supported in part by a $1 million grant from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and by an earlier $5 million grant from the GE Foundation.

At TC’s gala at the Apollo Theater, TC paid tribute to Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman and CEO of GE, and one of the gala’s five honorees. JPMorgan congratulated TC on "125 years of excellence in education" and celebrated a “shared commitment to improving educational outcomes for children."

REACH is administered by TC's Office of School and Community Partnerships. Schools currently part of the network are Margaret Douglas School, Harriet Tubman School, Heritage High School (founded by TC faculty member Judith Burton, with funding from Trustee Joyce Cowin), Frederick Douglass Academy II, Columbia Secondary School and Teachers College Community School (TCCS).

TCCS anchors the consortium of schools that leverages the resources of TC and Columbia University to provide comprehensive academic, social, and health services that are critical for children to reach their potential in school. Our key partners include: the Columbia School of Social Work; the School of Engineering & Applied Sciences; the Mailman School of Public Health; and numerous community and arts organizations.

TC’s Office of School and Community Partnerships was awarded nearly $2.6 million in state and city funds to advance family engagement and health-related efforts at two REACH schools, bringing the total combined philanthropic and public support of TCCS and our other partnership schools to $15.6 million.
