The Concerned Citizens Network of Alexandria has an extensive vision to create “A model community where all stakeholders contribute to student education and to the opportunity for every student to realize their individual potential.” To one day reach this vision, the CCNA works to reduce dropout rates, increase student achievement levels, change impact from a “risk” to a “promise”, develop partnerships among all communities and increase the number of students transitioning from high school into higher education or career paths in the Alexandria City Public Schools. These efforts are in part with other nonprofit organizations, local government and businesses, faith based organization and educators.
