TeenSHARPies Amadou (a rising junior at William Penn High School in Delaware), Brandon Navarro (rising junior at Cristo Rey in Philadelphia), and Jordan Navarro (rising junior at Cristo Rey in Philadelphia) just learned they have been accepted to attend the Carleton Liberal Arts Experience (CLAE) program at Carleton College (ranked #8 among liberal arts colleges) in Minnesota this summer!
Carleton College selects 52 students of color from across the nation for an all-expenses-paid summer program each year. The CLAE program introduces the strengths of a liberal arts education through an array of courses in science, art, social sciences, and technology. This year TeenSHARP had its largest group – three students- selected for the program!
Since 2011, 7 TeenSHARPies have been selected to attend CLAE, three students have gotten accepted into Carleton College, and 1 will be starting college at Carleton College this fall.
