PC Scholars sessions begin for all students


Our scholars meet twice per month for three hours on Saturdays throughout the school year and into the summer. The students stay in the program through their high school graduation.

they graduate from high school. They are then tracked while in college. For life skills and leadership – students learn about financial literacy, resiliency skills, healthy living and each year our students do a Day of Caring where they give back to the community.

The PC Scholars Program improves the lives of select African-American high school students through four key areas:

  • Academic Preparedness
  • Leadership
  • Career Preparedness
  • Life skills

The PC staff works with guidance counselors in the recruitment of students
Once applications are received the PC staff reviews each application which includes basic information, GPA, career choices and two essay questions
Students must meet the following criteria

  • 2.0 – 3.0 GPA
  • African-American
  • Attend 95% of all sessions
