Our mission is to prepare high-performing, low-income 6th-8th-grade students for the rigor of a high school and college curriculum and challenge them beyond their comfort level, which will enable them to maximize their potential, reach their dreams, and contribute positively to society.
Dream On provides each student with an effective and robust support system as well as stimulating and broadened horizons. Here’s how we do it. . .
Once per week, each student receives an hour of academic enrichment. During this time, students learn new traditional and nontraditional educational content and learn soft skills such as business etiquette, goal setting, and financial literacy.
We partner our bright, infinitely curious students with brilliant, exemplary professionals, who join us on our cultural outings.
Two to three times per year, all of our students attend an event that features hands-on activities led by professionals from the same industry.
Every other month, Dream On Education students attend an event that offers exposure to a unique culture/form of creative expression. A few examples of previous experiences are museum visits, culinary arts classes, and apparel design instruction.
High-achieving low-income youth are falling through the cracks, struggling (academically, socially, and emotionally) significantly in the 9th grade, and underperforming in high school, college, and beyond.
Nationally, “more students fail ninth grade than any other grade in high school and a disproportionate number of students who are held back in ninth grade subsequently drop out.”
Studies show that students in low-income academic communities who successfully navigate grades 6-8 have a 75% chance of graduating from high school. Students who do not improve/thrive during this time period, become disengaged or have an unsuccessful experience during this critical transitional period.
