Young Scholars Program Overview

Eligibility  |  Placement Schools  |  How to Apply  |  FAQ

The Young Scholars Program (YSP) of New Jersey SEEDS reaches children in 5th and 6th grades and strives to nurture their love of learning, critical thinking skills, self-confidence, respect for others and sense of responsibility toward the immediate and larger communities.

Three components comprise the 14-month enrichment cycle of the Young Scholars Program: a five-week summer session, classes each Saturday during the academic year, and a second five-week summer session. Upon completion, each child will be placed in an academically challenging selective day or boarding school with substantial financial aid packages.
