ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE CURRICULUM
High GPAs and graduation rates are happening in urban areas. Academics are crucial to allowing our students the opportunity at becoming independent learners. Through tutoring, in-the-field mentorship, and NWEA/ACT test prep, we ensure our urban students surpass the academic maturity of their peers elsewhere.
