SHARP – The Seven Hills School Academic Readiness Program provides students grades 4–8 with a pathway to private school education.

The Seven Hills Academic Readiness Program (SHARP) offers students from historically underrepresented communities in grades 4–8 a clearer path to the opportunities available at independent schools. The SHARP School Year session consists of eight classes that will take place on Thursdays from 6:15 p.m.–8 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!
