Diversity Scholarship Program
The Academe of the Oaks Diversity Scholarship Program provides scholarships to diverse and underserved students living in metro Atlanta. The program gives students an opportunity to excel in a college preparatory high school, and cultivate the skills necessary for successful college careers and beyond. Academe believes that students are integral participating members of their communities: school, local, and global. Academe’s interdisciplinary orientation and community focus strengthens the relationship between empathy and responsibility; cultivates deep social connections; and encourages students to affect the world in positive ways. Including students from a range of backgrounds exposes the entire student body to a variety of experiences and perspectives, which, in turn, fosters understanding and empathy.
Academe of the Oaks addresses the non-academic needs of scholarship students to ensure that we support our students’ progress both inside and outside of the classroom. This includes providing English support classes; guidance counselors; tutoring; and financial support for school-related costs above tuition. The success of the program is reflected most clearly in our students’ academic progress and enthusiastic involvement in school activities.
Funding for the Diversity Scholarship Program comes from many sources, including, but not limited to: foundation grants; the Tax Credit Scholarship Program; direct donations; and proceeds from fundraising events.
Events to support of the Diversity Scholarship Program are being planned for the upcoming school year. Please consider attending these events to connect with our community and to contribute to this worthwhile cause.
