A ninth grader enrolled in a Boston high school has a 7% chance of graduating from college. These results are staggering. When a student enrolls in Summer Search, this number jumps to 89%.

Beginning during their sophomore year in high school, Summer Search provides deserving, low-income students with the holistic support services that they need to strengthen their leadership skills, realize their potential, and ultimately succeed in high school, college and as professionals.

Summer Search serves the highest need communities in Boston, Chelsea and Malden. We focus our recruitment efforts on schools whose graduation rate is less than 75%- the definition of an underperforming school as outlined by the Massachusetts Department of Education. The average annual income for a family of four in Summer Search is $22,000. Over 90% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

All Summer Search students receive two full scholarships for experiential summer programs, one-on-one mentoring from highly trained, full time staff members, college and financial aid counseling, alumni support services and professional development opportunities throughout college and into their professional careers.

Summer Search works- 100% of Summer Search students graduate from high school and 89% graduate from college. When Summer Search students succeed, not only are they changing their lives, but they are also changing the lives of their families and shaping their communities.

Summer Search Boston is currently serving 370 students in Boston area high schools. Over the next five years, we plan to expand our services to help even more deserving students. But, we need your help. The 2012 Summer Search Boston Marathon Team is raising money to support our students and program. 100% of money donated will go directly to student support and programming. Please help us to reach more students in Boston and transform our community by building strong, altruistic leaders.
