The mission of the Oliver Scholars Program is to identify and engage extraordinary New York City students of African and Latino descent and prepare them for success at leading independent high schools and prestigious colleges. The Oliver Scholars model prepares our students to embrace the challenge of learning at the accelerated pace expected of them in the finest schools. Our internally designed curriculum uses sound pedagogy and support services tailored for the evolving needs of our target population. Careful attention is paid to teaching non-cognitive skills such as resilience and the ability to deal with adversity, in combination with critical thinking skills.
