This summer, Power Scholars Academy has gone virtual! Through academic lessons with credentialed teachers, ongoing support from committed Y staff, and opportunities for project-based learning and virtual field trips, scholars return to school in the fall as confident and empowered learners. 

Credentialed teachers and Y staff will keep your scholar engaged through live zoom sessions, independent work, and phone calls and open office hours.
