“My words don’t justify what SEO has done for me and for my peers. SEO has connected me with people who are fighting the same battle as I am - fighting for our education, our rights, and our voice."
- Ashley, SUNY Albany, Class of 2022
The Program includes:
A full day of “school” is provided three Saturdays per month during the academic year. Experienced teachers deliver a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum of reading, writing, grammar, and math. Classes are discussion-based and reflect college courses.
Our month-long Summer Academy features all-day classes, Monday through Friday.
After-School Instruction and Tutoring
Weekly after-school seminar-style classes and small-group tutoring is a vital component of our program model.
SAT Strategy Course
Saturday Academy continues throughout the 11th grade, concluding in an SAT strategy course in the spring.
Scholars work one-on-one with volunteer mentors throughout the 11th grade. Become a Mentor.
Summer Enrichment Programs (EPs)
Scholars participate in EPs that promote leadership and independence, including travel abroad, college courses, and internships, during the summer before 12th grade. Learn more.
College Applications and Financial Aid
Under the guidance of our college admissions team, Scholars visit campuses, meet with admissions officers, and receive personalized essay-writing assistance. They also get one-on-one counseling and support in applying for scholarships and financial aid so that, no matter their family income level, they can attend the best school to which they are accepted.
