is to support inner city high school students in New Jersey with private school tuition assistance and mentoring to increase their chances for college admission and scholarships, and to ultimately lead successful and productive lives.
Student/Partner Alliance provides scholarships to low income, inner city students who demonstrate a desire to be successful and continue their educations beyond high school.
Partners and Mentors offer one-on-one support to their students. Research show that students who are mentored have a greater chance of success at school and beyond. A recent study reported that 86% of seniors in a class that was mentored moved on to college where usually only 25 – 30% of students had done so before.
99% S/PA students graduate from the high school where they were awarded their S/PA scholarship as compared with a 40-65% graduation rate from other area schools.
98% of S/PA graduates continue their education at a institute of higher learning. Hundreds of thousands of scholarship dollars are awarded our graduates each year for the continuation of their education.
Graduates return to mentor Student/Partner Alliance students as Junior Mentors, completing the circle by giving back.
