Using squash, academics, mentoring and life skills development, Beyond Walls supports students in finding and graduating from their best-fit post-secondary pursuit. This starts as early as 6th grade and can span a student’s entire adolescence. Our pathway approach fosters a strong community of support and meaningful relationships that blossom over a period of years and nationally has yielded a 100% high school graduation rate, 99% enter into college, 83% earned their B.A. degree and 14% earned their A.A. degree.
You do not have to be an amazing athlete or an exceptional student to be a part of the Beyond Walls team. Beyond Walls is looking for students who have good attendance, and who demonstrate great attitude and effort.
Students in 6th through 12th grade learn the fast-paced game of squash, improve their academic performance, plan and lead community engagement projects and participate in the Beyond Walls mentor program.
