Year-round academic programs for youth including literacy enrichment, high school preparation, science, math, and technology

The Nettie Bailey Student Achievement Program creates an academic pipeline that enables students to meet academic benchmarks to be successful in high school and beyond. In this year-long program, participants engage in tutoring, homework help, and well-rounded offerings in the arts, science, and sports. These opportunities provide holistic academic enrichment, positive youth development, and prepare students to take an increased level of ownership over their education as they advance into high school and college. In the summer, youth are provided with full-day enrichment and youth development activities.
