StART Dreaming

StART Dreaming is a free yearlong program that immerses 15 - 20 rising high school seniors in arts education to which they do not have access, and helps them get into college. After a three-week summer arts intensive, the program tracks students through their senior year of high school, offering them ongoing cultural immersion opportunities and the support they need to get into college. This portion of the program includes a partnership with Morgan Stanley, through which each student is paired with an individual mentor who helps them submit their college applications. StART Dreaming has maintained a 100% success rate in college admissions for all of its high school graduates, and most students receive substantial scholarships.
