Troy High School Scholars Visit Siena College Campus

From seniors to sophomores, Troy High School Scholars visited...

Our mission is “…to assist economically disadvantaged young men and women to graduate from high school and attend college.”

The agency, founded by civic leaders and social entrepreneurs in 1996, currently serves over 400 aspiring scholars from Albany, Schenectady and Troy High Schools. We provide mentors, academic tutoring, and other social interactions for selected students in partnership with the public high schools. These schools, defined as “at-risk”, have a significant student percentage not meeting the minimum competency academic skill levels, based on standardized tests.

Our success rate of retaining, graduating, and getting participating scholars into higher education is documented at 92-96%. Our program is a nationally replicable model of one located in Philadelphia, called Philadelphia Futures. By helping at-risk students flourish academically and tracking their successes through their college careers, we have a program that is ready to take the next step toward systemic social change. We currently have a demonstrated impact and measurable advances in educational and economic opportunities.
