  • Relationships

  • Academic Coaching

  • And more 

Reading Aloud in Classroom


After completing the college preparatory workshop, applicants will be invited to attend our ScholarShower scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2024. The shower is an opportunity to celebrate each applicant's educational accomplishments and support them as they transition into their next phase of life. During the shower, applicants will receive their ScholarGift and college care packages. 

NOTE: Attendance at the college preparatory workshop and an acceptance letter from the college/university that the applicant plans to attend in the fall semester/quarter of 2024 are required to attend the ScholarShower.
