The 77 students in the CBA Scholars Academy represent 51 high schools, 37 cities, and seven states.

"The Scholars Academy truly provides each of us with a network of other students to support, encourage, challenge, motivate, and help us. It is amazing to be a part of. Knowing that on the first day of class I will probably have another Scholar in my class or at least see one (or four) on my way to class is really reassuring and comforting. The Scholars Academy is a group of people I can rely on in all types of situations, whether about classes, jobs, life advice, or anything else! I know that there are people who care about me and want to see me succeed just as much as I want to see them succeed. The people are the greatest part of the Scholars Academy."

-Megan Henderson, 2017 Scholar
