Watkinson School is pleased to announce that they received $2,500 from United Bank Foundation to support the school’s City Scholar Program.
Watkinson’s City Scholar Program provides scholarship funding for Hartford students who are college bound but not yet college ready to attend The Academy. An extension of Watkinson’s unique approach to education, The Academy is a pre-college year that combines honing skills through classes at Watkinson, acquiring confidence through earning college credits at the University of Hartford, and developing maturity through engagement with other areas of personal interest. Academy students collaboratively design their own program of targeted academic study, learning about themselves and the world around them, resulting in an enhanced ability to thrive independently in college and beyond.
