The young people we strive to serve reside primarily, but not exclusively, in neighborhoods characterized by high rates of persistent and concentrated poverty, joblessness, and a range of other social ills (including gang activity, drug dealing, and other criminal behavior). Through a host of academic and social cultural enrichment activities anchored in a multidisciplinary, extended school day, and extended school year program format, GSA will prepare youth from these types of neighborhoods for attainable slots in high quality public high schools and prestigious preparatory high schools - - the gateways to the most competitive colleges and universities.
