Clayton State University

His name is Dr. Tim Hynes. He’s president of Clayton State University, he’s special.

-Many of our girls are homeless at age 18. Dr. Hynes has offered to keep one of his dorms open year around for our girls so they are not sleeping outside on a park bench in the cold when the other students are home to be with family over Christmas break.

-His admissions office is willing to overlook the arrest records of our girls.

-He will personally write individual letters to the Board of Regents asking for in-state tuition for the girls.

-The assistant director of financial aid has given her personal cell number for the girls to call for help.

We have strategically partnered w/ Clayton State University. And yes, it in Atlanta just down the street from the recording studios. Clever, right!

For our artists under the age of 18 in order to remain in our program there are specific educational requirements that must be meet and maintained.

. . . . . GPA minimum of 2.5

. . . . . SAT (min. math 400, english 430, or ACT min. 17 composite)
