Celebrating 30 years of incredible scholars!

In 1993, something truly special began with an incredible group of community members who wanted to ensure young people where reading and thriving.

We are so thrilled to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our first program. Summer Scholars would pave the way to the year-long programs we deliver today!


Thank you to our supporters who began the journey with us, and the supporters we found along the way. Thank you to our scholars and their families for allowing us to be a part of their lives!!

Random Act of Kindness

One way we strive to support our scholars is through Social emotional learning. Our scholars develop pro-social skills – including positive communication, persistence, self-control, emotional regulation, and kindness. Join our scholars and mirror the SEL work try do at Scholars Unlimited each day by carrying out a random act of kindness this week.

Three Key Elements


Literacy is at the heart of the work we do, and is the foundation for academic success. Representation matters and we’ve enhanced our curriculum by developing it to be culturally responsive and relevant for our students, 91% of which are students of color.This means incorporating more books by authors of color and with heroes and heroines of color.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

Connection is a key element in learning. Our work supports our scholars’ social emotional learning growth. We are committed to helping our scholars develop pro-social skills – including positive communication, persistence, self-control, and emotional regulation — that will support their ongoing success in school, and in life. We strive to connect scholars with the skills that cultivate confidence, and the space for them to find their voice.


STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is incorporated throughout our programs. Our scholars participate in Maker Space during Scholars After School, and it enables our scholars to build connections and interact with peers which are vital components of social-emotional learning. In our Summer Scholars program, we intergate a STEM focused rotation.
