Hartford Youth Scholars




An education starts in school, but it never stops impacting so many other facets of life afterward, from families to careers and communities. This is why the Hartford Youth Scholars (HYS) is committed to ensuring that deserving students from Hartford succeed in high school and college — so they can achieve even more in the neighborhoods they return to in the years that follow.

With an intensive, 10-year support system for both students and families, and an exceptional academic enrichment program, the acclaimed Steppingstone Academy Hartford, HYS prepares highly motivated middle school students for a rigorous high school education; assists them in gaining acceptance and financial assistance at top college preparatory schools; and supports them through the college application process, college experience, and beyond.

Our goal? Help Hartford’s underserved children realize their true, powerful potential so they can then help their communities and their city do the same.

Why? Because, Education Changes Everything.
