As the major focus of our corporate philanthropy, The Elevation Scholars, Inc. focuses on educational inequality in the United States, primarily in Central Florida. The goal is to prepare high-achieving students from low-income families for acceptance into the nation’s most selective colleges and universities and to walk with them through college graduation.
Elevation believes that:
- There are academically high-performing, low-income students in Orange County.
- They require unique preparation for the level of college opportunity they have earned.
- This is due, in part, to the daily challenges they must overcome to achieve academic success.
- Absent change, this educational inequality will reinforce a cycle of neighborhood-based poverty.
It IS within reach to change this reality.
