The purpose of Urban Scholars is to provide talented urban students with the academic skills and the motivation to achieve at the limits of their potential. Our overarching goal is to enable our students to assume positions of leadership and achievement in society. To this end, our academic program is governed by the following core goals:
-To a graduating Urban Scholar, critical thinking is a habit of mind that is both creative and analytical.
-A graduating Urban Scholar expresses his or her thinking effectively in both written and oral form.
-Competency, confidence and resourcefulness in academic settings and beyond are hallmarks of every graduating Urban Scholar.
-A graduating Urban Scholar respects human dignity, accepts responsibility for his/her actions and exercises his/her rights and responsibilities as a citizen.
