Free Arts NYC and A-List

Free Arts NYC is an organization that provides under-served children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential. They visited us to offer volunteering places for our junior scholars to start gaining more experience in jobs related with art and community helping.

A-List is an organization that provides SAT/ACT courses and training to schools or any educational institutions. They have come to us to offer classes to our scholars so they can be more prepared for their SAT exams

Word Scramble Champs!

One of our wonderful Mentors, Deja Holden, took the college process to the next level when she created a word scramble to test the Junior Scholars knowledge on topics covered these past few months. As Juniors the scholars are exposed to the college application process early - so that they'll be ahead of the game come senior year.

Check out our recent World Scramble Champs!
