Our program supports educational enrichment opportunities for high-achieving public school students in the sixth and seventh grades. We aim to recognize and reward the high-achievers who may be overlooked and under stimulated in the crowded public school classrooms. There is no cost to attend any of our programs.


Our tuition-free program consists of a five-week summer institute taught by world-class instructors and community experts. Students study one theme intensely and learn to develop real world solutions by working collaboratively.

The next summer, returning students complete a two-week summer program during which they create a community outreach campaign built around projects developed the previous summer.

All Dawson Foundation graduates are eligible for academic advising through their senior year of high school. Our advisory program helps students navigate from the selection of high school courses to the college admission process.
