ABOUT: At the core of our mission is the belief that every student deserves the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. Through the HEROES Fellowship, we're tackling educational inequalities for students in grades 9 through 12. We provide unique Saturday classes that go beyond the traditional school curriculum, aiming to make learning more engaging and better prepare students for college-level coursework. In addition, we also pair each student with a dedicated success coach and offer educational resources. Through our completely free virtual fellowship, students gain confidence in their abilities and work to achieve their goals. This fellowship spans from late August to December 2024.



Students will engage in our virtual Saturday Academy, where they can select two courses of their choice from a wide array of subjects




Each student will be paired with a dedicated success coach who will serve as a mentor and guide throughout their college and career exploration journey. Through regular bi-weekly meetings, coaches will provide personalized support, offer valuable insights, and assist students in setting and achieving their goals


Our students have access to program counselors who lead weekly tutoring sessions. These sessions support students in both the classes offered at HEROES and those they may be taking as part of their high school journey (ex: English, Math, Global, Living Environment, etc)

  • Currently enrolled in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade

  • Excited about participating in a comprehensive college and career readiness program

  • Dedicated and committed to the specified times, ready to fully engage
