Our college access starts with readiness in 10th grade. We expose students to the application process and introduce them to colleges across the country. We work closely with students to help them with standardized tests, scholarships, essays, interviews, FAFSA, and submitting applications. Students are supported throughout the process to help them discover their next chapter after high school.
At Scholars, we focus on the WHOLE person. Each student is paired with a mentor to help guide, teach life skills and support with extracurricular activities. Mentors stay connected with scholars from high school through college to help ensure success in post-secondary education. Our mentors meet with scholars weekly to read & discuss current events, discuss, apply for extracurriculars, help with homework or to be a trusted friend in their corner.
Gotham Scholars is a community that teaches the importance of service and giving back. Throughout the year we work together to support our community. And after graduating, college scholars come back to share their experiences with our community. And finally, it is our hope that post-college scholars will continue to serve & help others to lift their entire community.
