Scholars After School serves 800+ students this year

By Coleen Truax

The Scholars After School program is up and running at nine Denver elementary schools, and 700 students are already engaged in literacy tutoring, hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning, self-paced math instruction, and a variety of enrichment and recreational activities.

“Our comprehensive after-school program offers so many ways for kids to learn!” said Kathleen King, president of Scholars Unlimited. “Literacy remains at the core of our program – but literacy learning is inter-woven with other subject matters. Our students are able to advance their literacy skills while increasing their knowledge in a broad variety of subjects.”

In addition to the comprehensive after-school program, Scholars Unlimited will provide literacy tutoring at selected schools later this fall: Denver Public Schools again selected Scholars Unlimited as a provider of Supplemental Education Services (SES) for the 2015-16 school year. The SES program will begin in November and will enable our organization to provide literacy intervention to an estimated 100-200 additional students.

“We’re proud to have been chosen as an SES provider again this year. Our selection is testament to our ability to help struggling young learners improve their literacy skills,” Kathleen said. “And it provides another avenue for Scholars Unlimited to help disadvantaged students boost their academic achievement.”
