Summer Scholars is a unique credit recovery program for low-income 9th-12th grade students who cannot afford the fee-based programs offered by their districts. These students would fall farther behind in school without a free option. Summer Scholars provides an opportunity for these at-risk students to experience 2 weeks of meaningful, faith-based learning.
Every summer, a team of volunteer teachers steps up to provide a Christ-centered solution to the cycle of failure experienced by these students, offering courses at no charge to the students enrolled. For many of these students, the experience is transforming, leading to profound changes in their attitude toward education. Some are breaking a family cycle by being the first in their families to graduate from high school.
