We Are Scholar Strong

Scholar Strong provides funding for projects and initiatives that revolve around:

  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)
  • Literacy
  • College and career readiness
  • Leadership development
  • Early Childhood Education

Investing in Student Success

Our children are the future and we recognize the importance of investing in them and their futures. Scholar Strong not only includes resources for classrooms at neighborhood schools, but also focuses on local efforts to increase access to early childhood education and out of school learning opportunities.
