Summer Scholars

First Star Academy at Loyola

Coming in Fall 2014

The First Star Academy at Loyola provides support to local Chicago students who are current foster youth.

This is a year-long program that feature monthly meetings, and an intensive on-campus experience over the summer. During the summer portion of the program, First Star Scholars will participate in a 4 week program, beginning with a week at Loyola’s Retreat and Ecology Campus. The program continues on the Lake Shore Campus for the remaining 3 weeks, where students integrate into our Summer Enrichment at Loyola program.

Through peer and staff mentoring and referral to campus resources, the First Star Academy at Loyola works to support students' academic achievement and personal development, and promote the realization of each student's educational and career goals. This is a high stakes, high reward program. Interested students can contact us directly for application information.
