The SLI program—a major component of the Provost Scholars Program—is a rigorous program in academic excellence and social emotional learning (traditionally exclusive to the rising 9th grade Provost Scholars. The four-week program includes ACT test preparation, advanced academic coursework (with an emphasis on math and science), as well as engagement in Advocacy Workshops culminating in a Capstone Presentation (via Webinar). The SLI will expand how Scholars will continue to improve their academic performance and integrate the development of leadership capacity through the applied work of the Advocacy Workshops. These workshops will include an emphasis on building leadership capacity by creating an intersection of academics and advocacy.
