Scholar Athletes partners with public high schools in the Greater Boston and Springfield area to help close the opportunity gap for thousands of young people in grades 9-12 across the Commonwealth. Scholar Athletes’ programs leverage the power of athletics and wellness to cultivate the discipline, confidence and social-emotional skills needed to support success in school, as well as success in life.
Team SA supports academic achievement through athletics. Their program is unique in that they have dedicated spaces – called Zones – in each of their partner schools. When not in class or playing their sport of choice, the students are in the Zones studying, working on homework, writing college essays, learning more about scholarship options for college and creating a roadmap for life after high school – all guided by Scholar Athletes staff and volunteers.
