Students Rising Above



How do you break the cycle of poverty and help create new opportunities for young people who have overcome tremendous obstacles? At SRA, we do it by helping our students fulfill their dream of going to college and creating a better life for themselves and their family. We learned long ago that it takes more than money to help them succeed in school and in life. To support our students, we have developed a comprehensive program to meet their unique and individualized needs. SRA’s program includes several components: Pre-College Readiness SupportOff-to-College SeminarsTuition & Financial SupportSRA Student AdvisorMedical and Dental carePaid Summer InternshipsA "Family" They Can Count On

Mission: Students Rising Above invests in low-income, first generation college students who have demonstrated a deep commitment to education and strength of character in overcoming tremendous odds of poverty, homelessness, and neglect. We help each student to realize his or her potential by guiding and supporting them through college graduation, and into the workforce. Our graduates are breaking the cycle of poverty within their own families, serving their communities, providing a new generation of employees and leaders from diverse backgrounds, and accelerating positive change. The SRA Community is dedicated to impacting the future through the cultivation of extraordinary youth.
