I have come to understand the importance of providing all students with opportunity to do their best work and to achieve the goals that will provide them passage to colleges and universities. The Saturday Scholar was founded in order for any student in grades, 8-12, to increase his/her knowledge and have the tools to perform well on the ACT, SAT, and PSAT. These national tests are for most students the precursor to college admission.
The Saturday Scholar team is committed to its essential mission to use the most effective learning tools, and adopt the best teaching methods to teach its students. Whether the faculty work one on one with students or deliver small group instruction, the goal is always to adapt our teaching to the learning needs of the students. We recognize that every student is unique and approaches testing differently.
As a group of dedicated educators, we commit to making a valuable difference in the educational lives of our students.

Reaching their true potential
Detroit area families are at a greater socioeconomic disadvantage than most. Since the onset of COVID-19, Detroit has been one of the hardest hit cities in Michigan. School closures left almost all Detroit students unable to finish schooling due to lack of funds for electronics and internet access. Now more than ever, students in the Detroit area need programs like The Saturday Scholar to help them get back on track. Our program is designed to build student success and exceed state requirements. Please consider donating to our educational nonprofit to ensure we can keep helping students in need.
The Saturday Scholar is now accepting applications for the 2020 - 2021 academic year
Contact us to learn more about our programs or if you would like to submit an application. On-site classes are held Saturdays at University of Detroit Mercy College of Business. All materials are provided. Financial aid is available.
