SMART Mission Statement
SMART provides highly motivated, financially-disadvantaged students with access to educational opportunities, personal experiences and social support services in order to foster academic excellence and community engagement.
Schools, Mentoring and Resource Team (SMART) is an educational non-profit organization that works with private middle schools in San Francisco to provide a three year scholarship (6th through 8th grade) to motivated students who cannot otherwise afford the opportunities and resources of a private school education (small class sizes; individual attention; high quality arts and athletics programs; access to new and advanced technology; an unprecedentedly safe environment). SMART also provides an array of social supports in order to foster academic excellence and community engagement.
It is SMART’s goal that upon graduating from middle school, participants will demonstrate a commitment to intellectual development and a strong sense of values positioning them for personal and professional success in high school, college and beyond.
