Mission: To improve the three A’s of Academics – Attitude, Attendance, Achievement – of academics in rising high school youth and to increase the size of the qualified applicant pool for competitive colleges, universities, and professional careers.

The RFT Strategy:

The program targets rising high school freshmen (generally, eighth graders) who have the capacity to excel in school but whose current grades or scholastic achievement do not reflect this potential.

The strategy employed is based on the observation that the pre- and early high school years are critical years in a young person’s life that frequently determine their academic future and life opportunities, but that all too often students who may have been enthusiastic, above average performers in school up to this point lose their interest in school, resulting in poor academic performance which never recovers.

RFT aims to intervene during these critical years to help a student maintain his or her enthusiasm for and momentum towards academic and personal excellence, first by giving the student a first hand look at the interesting and enjoyable opportunities that good grades in high school can open up for them, and then by helping them reach these goals throughout their high school years and into the college or academy application process.
