Afterschool Academy 
is an academic achievement program that helps prepare youth in grades 6 to 12 for success in college and careers. It has four components: Project Achieve (grades 6 - 7), Project Excel (grade 8), Project Ready: Mentor (grades 6 - 12), and Project Ready: PSSP (grades 8 – 12).

Black Scholars Program provides recognition, assistance, and incentives to students who achieve and maintain a “B” or better average throughout high school.

GEAR UP is a school-based program that serves students beginning in grade 8 through grade 12. The program seeks to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education by combating the multitude of challenges that prevent students from being college-ready. Staff is on-site at Leadership Academy for Young Men and East High School.
