Beyond what students receive in the Hartford Youth Scholars classroom we also realize the importance of educating the whole child. Experiences are invaluable; we provide opportunities for our Scholars to travel to new places, experience new activities and try new things. One recent example was a group of 5 Scholars who traveled to Washington DC to visit Howard University and participate in the Million Man March. We also provide annual excursions to the Hartford Stage, as well as numerous social engagements, including the 2015 black tie gala at the Wadsworth Athenaeum for the Amistad Center for Art and Culture and Hartford's 40 Under Forty event.
Only Hartford students (must also be Hartford residents) are eligible; we recruit 25-35 rising seventh and eighth grade students each year. There is no GPA requirement, but our academic programming is rigorous and attendance/commitment is required.
