Mission Statement

The mission of Scholar Athletes (SA) is to reduce the opportunity gap for public high school students by supporting academic achievement through athletics.

Description

The mission of Scholar Athletes (SA) is to reduce the opportunity gap for public high school students by supporting academic achievement through athletics. We focus on 3 core program areas: Academic Coaching & Mentorig, Health & Wellness and Postsecondary Planning supporting our Zone members on and off the field. We strive to enhance the scholar-athletes experience by connecting Zone members to dedicated and trained staff and volunteers to improve academic success and personal growth.

Scholar Athletes operates 23 school-based learning centers called Zones in Boston, Springfield and Everett to respond to the mounting needs of young people in our cities. Scholar Athletes Zones provided academic support, workspace and supplies along with technology resources. This space and our dedicated staff enable Zone members to stay on track both on and off the field providing them the resources and supports needed to excel beyond high school. SA also engages students in Health & Wellness programs that include intramural sports leagues and other physical activities through our We Are Fit program.
