I know the program is academics driven. What do the scholars do when they’re not at school?
Our goal is to provide participating scholars with a “typical” Wilton High School experience. ABC scholars participate in sports, go to the prom, belong to the National Honor Society, or act in plays just like their classmates. Like many teenagers in town, some scholars have a part-time job and often take part in town activities like volunteering at the library or the Halloween 5K Run. Participation in extracurricular activities is, however, conditional upon high academic effort and performance. We also attempt to place our scholars in summer programs that promote personal, social or academic development and can often arrange enrollment at no cost to the scholar.
