The Maya Angelou Alumni Support Program is designed to provide support to all Maya Angelou High School, Young Adult Learning Center, and Maya Angelou Academy graduates with the execution of the post-secondary plan they began developing while earning their high school credential. 

Scholars and their families will receive direct support as the scholar transitions from the Maya Angelou schools to their chosen college, training program, or place of employment.   Contact Katia Jones, Director Of Post Secondary Success, at

Enjoy a few testimonials fr
om Maya Scholars:  

“In someway, Maya helped me realize that I’m going to pursue music or go into HVAC. I’m confident that Maya has prepared me for what’s coming in the world.”  

“My goal is to be the first person in my family to say I graduated and I went to college.” 

“School just really wasn’t that important to me. Now, I’m trying to make up for it, attempting to the get the best grades I can, so that I can get into college and succeed in life.”  

Celebrating the Class of 2020 

While we recognize the importance of a high school graduation, we must also remind each graduate that the journey is just beginning. This year’s graduating class has plans to enroll in a variety of traditional colleges and training programs and begin fellowships and military careers.
