What Happens Here Matters

​​Campus 2.jpg

Guardian Scholars is a program committed to supporting ambitious, college bound students exiting the foster care system.  What makes this program such a rewarding experience is the personal attention paid to each student and people involved​​.  The program is integral to the success of the student, and is designed to provide a level of support and networking that is critically needed for this special population, to ensure that full advantage is taken of college life, both inside and outside the classroom.  ​
