The Zone

Scholar Athletes mission is to support academic achievement through athletics. Our program is unique in that we have dedicated space – called Zones – in each of our partner schools. When not in class or playing their sport of choice, our students are in the Zones studying, working on homework, writing college essays, learning more about scholarship options for college and creating a roadmap for life after high school – all guided by Scholar Athletes staff and volunteers.


The students in our programs – called Zone members – participate in our three core program areas: Academic Coaching and Mentoring, Health & Wellness, and College & Career Readiness. Whether participating in kickboxing through our We Are Fit program, playing an SA intramural sport, or on a rostered varsity team, each Zone member has the opportunity to find support and guidance from our program staff.


Zone members receive support for their academic success and social-emotional skill development in a targeted and tailored way, integrating lessons learned on the field or engaged in wellness into their everyday experience. The goal is for each Zone member to graduate from high school with a plan that is focused on the future, with the support, skills and tools to put that plan into action.
