SHARP – The Seven Hills School Academic Readiness Program provides students entering grades 5–9 with a pathway to private school education.

The Seven Hills Academic Readiness Program (SHARP) offers students from historically underrepresented communities entering grades 5–9 a clearer path to the opportunities available at independent schools. The SHARP Summer Program session consists of ten classes that will take place from July 22 – August 2, from 9 a.m.– 3 p.m. at The Seven Hills School Hillsdale Campus.

A private school education for your child is not as far-fetched as you think. If you believe your child would thrive in a different educational environment, enroll in SHARP and explore the possibilities. Apply today!
