Young Scholars Program Overview

The Young Scholars Program is a 14-month academic program that prepares 5th and 6th grade students for placement in selective middle schools with substantial financial aid. The program is designed to rapidly build the critical thinking skills, knowledge base, emotional intelligence and cultural understanding that will allow students to thrive in far more challenging school environments than those from which they come.

Three components comprise the 14-month cycle of the Young Scholars Program: a five-week summer session, classes each Saturday during the academic year, and a second five-week summer session. Upon completion, each child will be placed in an academically challenging selective day or junior boarding school.
