We believe education has the power to transform.
And not just individuals. With each student that takes an AP class, scores well on the SAT, or gets into a top-tier university, the bar is raised for everyone. By lifting expectations for the students we serve, the Academic Success Program promotes a college-going culture in communities.
We work with all key players -- including students, parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and college admissions officers to gain higher education access for our students, with a focus on those who are first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented minorities. We work individually with students to identify the best fit as they continue on their path to higher education -- be that an Ivy League school, a public state university, or a local community college. This holistic approach delivers results.
