Since its founding in 1986, The Partners Program has instilled in Oakland middle school students a joy of learning, helped those students gain an understanding of educational opportunities that are available to them, and equipped them with the skills, self-discipline and resources needed to realize these goals.
Summer Academy is a full-day, 4-week experience in which scholars take daily classes in math, english, life skills, art, dance and coding, and have weekly clubs and field trips. Scholars participate in Summer Academy during the summer after their 6th, 7th, and 8th grade years.
High School Advising
In our HSA program, program staff works with scholars and their family to find the high school that will be the right fit. Staff will provide letters of recommendation, accompany families to high school visits, and assist with all application materials and financial aid applications.
