Mission Statement

Scholars Unlimited's (formerly Summer Scholars) mission is to support under-resourced, academically struggling young learners by providing rigorous literacy instruction and enrichment programs in order to achieve measurable success and inspire life-long learning.

Organization History

Summer Scholars was started in response to Denver's nationally publicized "Summer of Violence." Recognizing the links between poverty, low academic performance and criminal behavior, two Park Hill community activists created a summer reading program that served 20 students from low-income families in 1993. Summer Scholars officially launched the following summer, serving 511 students.

Today, Scholars Unlimited provides two complementary programs that work year-round to increase academic performance among elementary school students, to help children build pro-social skills, and to provide educational opportunities to parents. Since its inception, Scholars Unlimited has served more than 30,000 Denver children.

Scholars Unlimited aims to assist children who are most in need of academic assistance and most at-risk for school failure. By consistently providing high-quality programming that delivers measurable results, we hope to put these children on the path toward school success and, longer-term, economic self-sufficiency.
