We hope this finds you well and as excited about the 2019/2020 school year as we are!
As you may know, Scholar Athletes is a non-profit organization that serves thousands of Boston Public, Springfield Public and Everett Public high school students whose mission is to support academic success through athletics. We do this through our “Zones”, which are school-based learning centers located within your child’s high school. Our Zones are open during the day and after school, and have a full-time, Scholar Athletes staff member managing and overseeing the space and its programming.
While in the Zone, your child has the opportunity to participate in three core areas of programming: Academic Coaching & Mentoring, Health & Wellness, and College & Career Readiness for free. We believe that they are not only improving their academic standing by doing this, but also their confidence in their ability to succeed in high school, in college and/or career and in life.
Attached, please find our membership application that includes a variety of information that we gather in order to best support Zone members‘ needs. Please know that all information we gather will be kept confidential and will only be used in aggregate form for reporting purposes. This information is important in order to help us provide free memberships and programming by securing donations and grants. We know that high school students have their choice of organizations to join and we are honored to have your child as a Zone member in our organization.
If you have questions regarding this membership packet, feel free to contact your Zone staff or anyone on the Scholar Athletes team.
Thank you again for your support and I wish you and your family an amazing school year!
