For Families

Our Programs

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.


STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is incorporated throughout our programs.
During the summer, our scholars took part in Next Generation City Builders (NGCB). This unique experience opens doors and creates opportunities for our future workforce by introducing youth in underserved neighborhoods to STEM-related careers.

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.

This past year, kids were isolated. We know it has been tough on parents and students alike. We see all of your tremendous efforts to keep your students on track and applaud the ways families have navigated the pandemic. Working with your student allows us to walk alongside you and help provide support and the academic boost your student deserves.

Our commitment to learning remains steadfast in the wake of COVID. We recognize that this time has challenged our scholars and the transitions between different styles of learning was not easy.

We honor the agility of our students by meeting them where they are to provide engaging support whether online or in person. Scholars Unlimited unwavering approach connects programs with scholars to provide the academic boost they will need as they continue to navigate learning during and beyond the pandemic.

As we continue to move forward, we are hopeful, and also know that returning back to exactly how things were prior to 2020 is not likely. We recognize that there are many things that may remain ever changing, and that our families and students might benefit from continued community support, resources and information.
