Metro Atlanta Regional Education Partnership

Learn4Life (L4L), the Metro Atlanta Regional Education Partnership, is made up of school districts, communities, businesses, and nonprofits. Driven by our shared belief that all children deserve the opportunity to reach their potential, we use data to identify best practices at key milestones in a student’s education. We then work with our partners to scale these solutions, addressing academic achievement and workforce readiness for 600,000 students in metro Atlanta.
