Program Description

Our Program SEO Scholars has a simple mission: to ensure that motivated low-income public high school students get to and through America�¢�?�?s competitive colleges and universities. In high school, we offer intensive year-round academic preparation via a carefully-calibrated, rigorously-assessed course of supplemental education which adds the equivalent of 2.5+ years of instruction in English and 1.5+ years of instruction in Math. Classes are held on Saturdays, after school and during the summers. In college, we continue to support students through each of their four years, ensuring that they graduate. Direct ongoing counseling provides one-on-one guidance on adjusting to college life, building academic success skills, exploring career options and securing internships.
