The non-profit Armory Foundation is dedicated to serving youth by promoting fitness and education through a broad range of athletic, educational and community programs, including the Armory College Prep program, which helps keep kids on track to a four-year college degree.

Armory College Prep middle and high school programs served over 150 students during the 2015-2016 school year and since inception we have worked with over one thousand students. We are proud that Armory College Prep has helped students earn more than $5,000,000 in college scholarship funds since 2014, and achieve honors such as The New York Times Scholarship winner, Gates Millennium Scholarship Finalist, Bonner Scholarship Winner, Questbridge College Prep Scholar, LEDA Foundation Award Winner, POSSE Foundation Scholarship Winner and more.

Armory College Prep’s high school program is offered to any student in grades 9-12 who trains at our facility. The dynamic program includes onsite classes twice a week, access to SAT practice tests with real-time results, and in-class and online coaching resources to assist students in advancing their math and language skills. Our staff is also available to provide remote support after hours throughout the week.

We help freshmen and sophomores choose courses that will challenge them and produce well-rounded, college-ready transcripts. Juniors participate in small groups that concentrate on SAT preparation and on understanding the college application process. Seniors work with Armory College Prep staff to develop effective college applications and essays, and prepare for college interviews, and access scholarships.

Armory College Prep middle school program includes onsite classes four times a week. Our curriculum for grades 6-8 is designed to set students up for lifelong success by focusing on STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Technology.

The Armory Foundation also provide programs for middle school and high school students during school breaks and summer.
