McCarver Scholars

Elementary Program

We believe investment in a strong foundation is key to a student’s long-term success. That is why our scholars begin their journey on the Peace Pathway the summer before second grade. At McCarver Scholars, Peace partners with elementary students four out of five days a week to provide after-school tutoring, summer academies, fun enrichments and direct classroom support. Our goal is to support our youngest learners as they build confidence, boost grade-level skills, and practice persistence.

Investing in STEAM

In addition to core programming, McCarver Scholars employs project-based learning strategies that allow students as young as seven to dive head-first into Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM). Field trips around the region build on classroom experiences while instilling curiosity and generating interest in STEAM in middle school and beyond.
