Scholars Unlimited provides an engaging learning environment with fun, stimulating and hands-on activities for scholars after school and over the summer. Our no cost out-of-school programs expand beyond academic support to promote positive youth development. Our scholars are encouraged to use their voices and agency to make choices as they explore new interests and discover new passions.
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.
