Why HYS?

“We take pride in our ability to provide individualized and one-on-one support to students throughout their educational experience to ensure that all Scholars will enroll in and succeed at the college level.”

It is our philosophy that the quest for educational access and opportunity is a team effort involving the on-going commitment and dedication of Scholars, educators, and parents. Starting in middle school and continuing on through college graduation, Support Services promises a ten-year commitment to the social, emotional, and academic success of all Scholars.  We take pride in our ability to provide individualized and one-on-one support to students throughout their educational experience to ensure that all Scholars will enroll in and succeed at the college level.

Regardless of whether students attend public or private schools, Support Services works to address the needs of every Scholar, as well as to provide Scholars and families with a nurturing and supportive community throughout high school and college. With frequent communication, academic monitoring, and special attention to the college process, Support Services aims to stay abreast of every Scholar’s individual situation in order to make college access not just a dream, but also a reality.

I feel so honored to be part of this student-centered community and look forward to helping Scholars achieve their personal and academic goals along their journey with HYS. With targeted, one-on-one support, we hope all Scholars will continue to excel both inside and outside the classroom, as well as to find ways to give back to the Hartford community.
