We're celebrating! In the summer of 1993, one dedicated volunteer at Hallett Elementary School put together a literacy tutoring program for 20 young students who were struggling readers. The success of that program spurred the creation of Summer Scholars. And now, we're celebrating 25 years of creating brighter futures for children in our community. So much has changed in Denver over the past 25 years -- but what has remained constant at Scholars Unlimited is our unlimited commitment to helping young students build foundations for academic and personal success. Unlimited in our belief that the children we serve can reach their full potential. Unlimited in our gratitude for all of the community partners and donors who have helped thousands of scholars over the past 25 years. And unlimited in our excitement as we look forward to our future.

Dynamic programs that inspire young learners.


This is where it gets exciting!

At Scholars Unlimited, we are dedicated to:

  • Helping young learners master critical literacy skills and become proficient readers,
  • Broadening kids’ views of the world around them,
  • Sparking imaginations and inspiring a passion for learning, and
  • Helping our scholars build an unlimited belief in themselves.

As Summer Scholars, we began providing our signature summer literacy program in 1993. The Scholars After School program was added in 2000. Today, as Scholars Unlimited, we have a name that reflects the scope of our programs for students in the Denver metro area.

And an unwavering commitment to empowering students for academic and personal success.
