In 2015 more than 90% of our first-ever graduating class, the class of 2019 (named for the year they will graduate from college), was accepted to college. This includes schools like Howard, Morehouse, Rutgers, Seton Hall, St. Michael's, Temple, The College of St. Elizabeth, and UMass Boston. While there is much to be proud of, there is still much more to be done.
Be inspired by the incredible artistic talents of our students. Featuring handcrafted, unique canvas paintings and creations, join us for this spectacular evening highlighting students' works of art.
Doors open at 6:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
We hope to see you there!
