About Us

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 8.34.03 PMA Better Chance Greylock, Inc. (ABC Greylock) is a Community School Program affiliated with the National A Better Chance organization, a national residential high school program which prepares academically talented and highly motivated African American, Latino, Asian, and Native American students from educationally underserved school districts for college and future leadership roles in the broader community.

ABC Greylock strives to provide a supervised, structured home in Williamstown, MA, where talented young scholars from underrepresented minorities are given a chance to attend our respected, regional high school, with the final goal of gaining admission to competitive colleges. The program offers a dynamic, challenging college preparatory curricula, where the ABC scholars and their peers learn first-hand the benefits of diversity and new perspectives in education and life. ABC Greylock has been supporting students in the Williamstown ABC House, located adjacent to the Williams College campus, since 1968.

Scholars live family-style in the ABC House in Williamstown. ABC Resident Directors provide a warm supportive environment enriched by daily sessions with Williams College tutors. ABC Board members, community mentors and Mt Greylock Regional High School faculty and staff also offer guidance and support. ABC Scholars forge lasting bonds with local host families through monthly weekend visits and additional enrichment activities.

ABC Greylock depends on proceeds of the annual ABC Sale at the First Congregational Church each fall to maintain this high successful residential model. Thanks to those of you who have supported us in the past.
