SPAAT’s development programs use a curriculum that connects with a student’s familiarity and passion for sports.
We deliver programs in middle and high schools through advising services, tutoring sessions, college planning, recruiting advisory, self-development seminars, and motivational speakers.
Our program goals are to:
- Increase student attendance and grow a college-going culture
- Increase English and math proficiency rates
- Increase graduation rates
- Increase the number of students who graduate CSU/UC (a-g) eligible
- Increase the number of students receiving academic and athletic scholarships
SPAAT students must:
