Nothing is impossible, the word itself says " I'm possible !"Ursula E. Collins K 8 School is a concentrated and condensed community school that is the focal point and pride of the people who comprise the historic 15th Street corridor in urban Augusta. It is one of the many urban schools named for an outstanding African American educator, who helped change the paradigm of education in Richmond County to ensure equity and equality for all children in the Richmond County School System. Approximately fifty percent of our students presently reside in the Cherry Tree Crossing housing community that has been slated for demolition in the coming school year; however, these residents are seeking housing within the Collins K-8 school zone because of the historical connection they have with the school. The parents of Cherry Tree Crossing realize that their children receive a rich and quality education at Collins K 8 School while maintaining their identity and heritage. In the past ten years, Ursula E. Collins has been recognized as a Title I Distinguished School four times. Ursula E. Collins K 8 School has been a solid cornerstone and pillar of the 15th Street corridor for over fifty years. The school still provides a cultural educational experience that young African American students identity as part of their rich heritage. This educational experience cannot be achieved anywhere else in the Richmond County School System.
