Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s foundation, Family of 3, recently partnered with Copperas Cove Independent School District to fund and offer a free SAT prep program from Education Online Learning.
“Teachers are committed to working with students for at least four 30-minute sessions during the fall semester utilizing this program,” said CCISD Director of Career and College Readiness Russell Porterfield. “Currently, the plan is to utilize the program mostly with seniors this fall because of the SAT redesign, which goes into effect in March. The PSAT is coming up quickly in October is also a part of the redesign.”
Porterfield said that the funding helps with English Language Arts IV and Pre-Calculus classes.
“We are so excited that the students are going to have access to this software,” Griffin III said. “We are hopeful that this will enable many students to score higher on their exams, giving them not only acceptance to schools, but access to scholarship money as a result of their academic achievements. Copperas Cove produces bright, hard working individuals, and we want them all to have every opportunity to succeed, no matter the circumstances they may have at home.”
Family of 3 is also planning on offering a similar service for Anacostia High School in Washington, D.C.
Griffin III started the Family of 3 Foundation as a way to help those in need in the Washington, D.C., area, back home in Texans and elsewhere.
“It’s important to me because when you call somebody family, it means something,” Griffin III said of starting his foundation. “It means more to you and family has been a big part of my life. So the foundation we’ll be working with will have ties to some aspect of my life in one way or another, and we want to be there for them in more ways than just money.”

It is always gratifying to see people you know reach the top in their professions. What makes them great both in their professions and their personal lives is when they remember how they got to where they are. Robert Griffin III is remembering his roots through his foundation, Family of 3.
Griffin’s foundation recently partnered with Copperas Cove Independent School District to offer a free SAT prep program from Education Online Learning. CCISD Director of Career and College Readiness Russell Porterfield said the learning tool is being implemented in English Language Arts IV and Pre-Calculus classes. The funding source is Family of 3, the RGIII foundation.
“Teachers are committed to working with students for at least four 30-minute sessions during the fall semester utilizing this program,” Porterfield said. “Currently, the plan is to utilize the program mostly with seniors this fall because of the SAT redesign, which goes into effect in March. The PSAT is coming up quickly in October is also a part of the redesign.”
The creator of the SAT prep program is John Leddo. If students demonstrate their work while using the program, he has built in artificial intelligence that will help students identify their specific errors based on the work they show when they are struggling with a problem, Porterfield said.
Griffin’s Foundation, Family of 3, has partnered with many organizations including Boys and Girls Club, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (military families), Bob Woodruff Foundation (veterans) and Waco Family Abuse Center.
“The Family of 3 is an initiative that truly comes from my heart, and with the help of our members, I’m excited about the difference we can make in people’s lives,” Griffin said on the foundation’s website. “With this foundation, I want people to understand that their dreams aren’t out of reach, and that anything is possible.
“As a collective Family, we will strive to create meaningful networks for people in our everyday lives by providing them with access to the tools and resources necessary to reach their fullest potential. Most importantly, we want to provide hope, support and opportunity to all and be that extra push people need in order to realize and catch their dreams.”
CCISD began using the SAT prep program this week and Porterfield said the educational tool has already boosted confidence levels.
“Every student I spoke with was very appreciative and thankful to have the opportunity to use the program. One student in particular said that he was very excited to use Education Online Learning because he needs to improve his SAT score and the problems were so similar to the SAT that he felt confident this would help him do it.”
