About SMART

SMART (Schools, Mentoring and Resource Team, Inc.) champions education equity by supporting students in overcoming systemic barriers on their journey to a college degree. We envision a community with equitable pathways to college graduation for every student in San Francisco. SMART provides a unique eight-year continuum of support that starts in 4th grade and goes all the way to college, including school support, after school enrichment, summer programming and college preparation. Since launching our high school program in 2011, 100% of SMART Scholars have graduated high school and matriculated to college. While only 21% of very low-income students who enter college will graduate within six years, SMART Scholars are currently persisting at a rate of more than 80%.


About SMART’s Summer Academic Enrichment Program

The 2021 SMART Summer Program will be virtual. SMART’s Summer Academic Enrichment Program serves rising 5th and 6th grade students to prevent and reduce instances of summer learning loss, while providing enriching activities to develop and strengthen the positive bonds of youth to their peers and communities.

From Monday - Thursday, students engage in daily academic programming that centers on math and language arts, and advisory meetings to support their social-emotional needs.

Summer teachers work six hours per day, focusing on academic programming. This includes asynchronous and synchronous teaching, along with teacher prep time built into the day.

The math and language arts curriculum will be provided to summer program teachers by SMART.
