Female students at Somali Achievement SummitDuring the 2021-22 school year, the Green Bay Area Public School District (GBAPS) will hold seven Achievement Summits. In partnership with the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay, the summits will focus on 6th grade students of diverse backgrounds, including Somali, African American, Latino/Latina, Asian American/Pacific Islander and First Nations. 

The purpose of the Achievement Summits is to provide a positive opportunity for students to see themselves in the world of postsecondary education and learn how to navigate the challenges they may encounter. In addition, the summits focus on creating positive cultural identity, which can improve student success resulting in increased graduation rates and postsecondary enrollment. 

While on the UW-Green Bay campus, students participate in workshops and tour the campus. In addition, it provides students an opportunity to connect with students across the school district. 

On November 18, 2021 the District held its first Achievement Summit, which was for 6th through 8th grade Somali students. Due to the smaller population of Somali students, all three middle school grades were able to attend.
