SMART Mission Statement
SMART provides highly motivated, financially-disadvantaged students with access to educational opportunities, personal experiences and social support services in order to foster academic excellence and community engagement.
Only 8% of low-income students earn a college degree. SMART closes the achievement gap by providing these students with access to private schools, and with intensive social, emotional and academic support from grades 5-12. 92% of SMART students attend college, forever altering the trajectory of their lives, and the lives of their families and communities.
