Supporting academic achievement through athletics
Scholar Athletes’ overall goals are to prepare public high school students in typically underserved urban communities to graduate high school and enter a college degree program, and to operate a sustainable, replicable model that grows to serve more than 4,500 students by the 2016-17 school year. In order to achieve these goals, Scholar Athletes has implemented proven and effective programming through its dedicated learning spaces called Zones in Boston and Springfield. Academic programming includes academic coaching and support, one-on-one tutoring, post-secondary guidance, SAT prepatory coursework, college tours and scholarships.
Given the proven link between athletic participation and positive academic performance, Scholar Athletes’ athletic initiatives, such as intramurals, are aimed at increasing the overall participation in athletics and at using athletic opportunities as the “hook” to get students into the Zone. Scholar Athletes believes that the collaborative efforts between its academic and athletic programming shapes character, develops confidence, and enhances opportunities for success for its students and the community.
