    Y-Scholars (rm115e)

    Each spring, Y-Scholars recruits 30 incoming freshmen of African descent who have the desire to accelerate their learning potential and prepare for post-secondary education. Students are thus automatically placed in Honors level core classes their freshman and sophomore years, preparing students for Advanced Placement classes (AP) during their junior and senior years which prepares them for future success at a four-year university. Students receive individualized college readiness support during junior and seniors years which has resulted in a 100% college acceptance rate
