Program 1

Academic Programming

Thurgood Marshall Academy serves its at-risk student population by integrating a law-related, standards-based, college-preparatory curriculum with wrap-around support services. Our curriculum both emphasizes literacy and numeracy skills and teaches students the skills lawyers have: thinking critically, speaking in public, and using evidence to support an argument. Wrap-around services, which include one-on-one tutoring; individualized mentoring; subsidized meals and uniforms; a five-week Summer Prep program to orient incoming students to the academic and behavioral expectations of a college-preparatory high school; and full-time clinical counselors, provide students with the academic and personal support they need to meet high expectations. We partner with law firms around the city to provide students with professional role models and the civic understanding that helps our students become advocates for themselves and their communities.

Out of School Programs

Thurgood Marshall Academy's out-of-school programming is designed to work in tandem with in-school academic programming to provide our students, many of whom experience poverty and educational deficits, with the resources they need to succeed. Programs include athletics and clubs, after-school tutoring both at the school and at area law firms, a robust mentoring program, community service opportunities, and many more.

Funding Needs

Funding for our College Access Initiative is crucial because we go so far above and beyond the traditional college counseling in a typical high school. Many of our students will be the first in their families to attend college, and they therefore require significant support researching colleges, filling out applications, pursuing scholarships and other funding options, and adjusting to college life.
