Please help us identify your amazing students!

SMART receives over 200 referrals from our partner referral sources (public schools and community-based organizations) for 25 - 30 student placements in the 4th grade. Our candidates demonstrate strong academic potential, motivation to succeed, and curiosity for the world around them. The students and their families must show a strong commitment to participate fully in this intense eight-year program (5th - 12th grades).

There are two ways you can refer students to our program.

1) Fourth Grade Entry (most typical): Families must be current 4th grade students, commit to a San Francisco based program, and qualify financially (typically enrolled in free or reduced lunch program).

2) Alternative Entry - 6th - 11th: Students must be currently enrolled in a private school, and can commit to a 6th - 11th grade program. Acceptance dependent on availability of space within a cohort. .
