School placement

After successful completion of our 14-month Academic Enrichment phase, 98% of our scholars earn placement into college prep programs throughout the region. This is a key step for our scholars on their journey to college.

Our staff work closely with students and their families to find the most challenging school environment that best fits the needs of each student. Ultimately, about 40% of our scholars are placed in public Advanced Learning Programs and nearly 60% in independent, parochial and boarding schools. Our goal is to give scholars and their families all the tools, information and support they need to be empowered to make choices about their education.
