Supporting Academic Achievement Through Athletics
Scholar Athletes partners with public high schools to help close the opportunity gap for thousands of young people in grades 9-12 across the Commonwealth. Scholar Athletes’ programs leverage the power of athletics and wellness to cultivate the discipline, confidence and social-emotional skills needed to support success in school, as well as success in life.
Scholar Athletes’ mission is to support academic achievement through athletics. Our program is unique in that we have dedicated space – called Zones – in each of our partner schools. When not in class or playing their sport of choice, participants are in the Zones studying, working on homework, writing college essays, learning more about scholarship options for college and creating a roadmap for life after high school – all guided by Scholar Athletes staff and volunteers.
