The Ashe Academy empowers students and families of color with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete higher education while providing parental engagement, scholarships, mentorships and support services to aspiring scholars at the helm of excellence.
WHAT IS THE ASHE ACADEMY?
ASHE is more than just our founding leadership’s namesake, this acronym stands as a moniker for each and every student of color we will impact, an Aspiring Scholar at the Helm of Excellence. This Academy is dedicated to enriching the academic careers of these scholars through Parental Engagement, Mentorships, and Scholarships for students of color pursuing The Arts & Stem fields.
Through Representation-Focused programs, we’re doing our part to create an inclusive and accessible future.
In order to address systemic and societal obstacles, students of color are often left without many of the tools to navigate leading to fewer people of color pursuing the Arts & STEM fields respectively. As a result, potentials go untapped, dreams go unexplored, and preconceptions go unchallenged.
By exposing students of color to professionals of color in positions they may not dare dream of we to illustrate a doorway to their true potential and enable a path to self-discovery and growth.
