GROWTH EVERY DAY, IN EVERY WAY

2017 ANNUAL REPORT


OUR MISSION Oliver Scholars prepares high-achieving Black and Latino students from underserved New York City communities for success at top independent schools and prestigious colleges. We provide crucial support for our Scholars so they can realize their full potential and ultimately give back to the city, the nation, and the world.

Dear Friends of Oliver, Each year as we develop our Annual Report for the Oliver Scholars community, we reflect on our greatest successes of the prior year and combine them with a vision for our future. In doing so, a theme often arises. This year’s theme came easily to us: “Growth Every Day, in Every Way.” In 2017, both our Scholars and Alumni hit major milestones. Our dedicated Staff did an incredible job of expanding our outreach and strengthening the programs and services we offered, including our inaugural Middle School Placement Program. We recruited Oliver’s largest class of students ever by conducting more than 200 school visits to identify students often overlooked in underserved communities. This dedication to the farthest reaches of our city paid off with a commitment of more than $6 million in financial aid from 70 partner schools for 142 Scholars. Our rigorous SAT and ACT preparation made our Scholars even stronger applicants, and visiting 20 college campuses on our college tours gave them an opportunity to envision themselves as students at these top schools. We realized a 20 percent increase in the number of Scholars matriculating at top-50 colleges and universities. Through it all, our Scholars continued to exhibit their passion for service by contributing more than 5,900 of service hours to their communities! Oliver’s Alumni, donors, and Trustees made it possible for us to achieve these results by giving their time, talents, and treasures to promote educational access, achievement, and leadership. Through our Annual Fund, Gala, our Junior Board, and Alumni, we raised an astounding $1.4 million, and our Alumni Council led the charge on re-engaging the Alumni community by serving as Mentors to our Scholars and speakers and coaches at student programs. Our accomplishments would not have been possible without your steadfast support. As we turn our attention to the future, we intend to continue our work of identifying promising but untapped and under-resourced students. We commit to developing Black and Latino leaders who believe in a shared responsibility to society. We commit to preparing our Scholars for rigorous academic institutions at the middle school, high school, and collegiate levels. And, we commit to exposing our Scholars to opportunities and experiences that enable them to thrive in a technology-driven economy. Thank you for bringing Oliver Scholars’ mission to life. Your support is helping us to grow every day, in every way, and we look forward to doing so much more with you in 2018!

PLACEMENT PROGRAMS

MIDDLE SCHOOL PLACEMENT PROGRAM In 2017, Oliver expanded its service continuum to include middle school Scholars and admitted 15 students to its first cohort. Working with younger students increases the likelihood of Scholar success in high school and college, which is one of Oliver’s key goals. Students enter the Middle School Placement Program at the end of fourth grade, receive intensive academic preparation through our Scholar Immersion and Placement Program (SIP), and achieve placement at an independent middle school for sixth grade. Instruction during SIP utilizes an integrated, project-based curriculum focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). We also prepare and supporte students through the multi-step admission process for independent schools: application completion, visits, testing, interviews, and applying for financial aid.

“Oliver helped put Laura in the right school for her intellectual, emotional, and physical growth. Plus, the academic enrichment and leadership development they provide outside of school really help her to stretch beyond her comfort zone. We feel blessed that she has these opportunities that put her on the right track for applying to college.” ~ JUAN CARLOS AND LINA GONZALEZ

HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT PROGRAM Oliver’s High School Placement Program increased the number of students it served in 2017, expanded its Staff to support them, and strengthened the programming offered. In our Scholar Immersion and Placement Program, we continued to offer core academic subjects such as Algebra, English, and History. Additionally, because of our deep commitment to ensuring our students are prepared to thrive in the Information Age and adjust to societal trends, we introduced an integrated STEM-based learning curriculum that included Biotechnology and incorporated a structured foreign language program through a new 25-week Mandarin course. Our STEM class gives students a foundation in technology concepts. The Mandarin program emphasizes cognitive development and cross-cultural learning, and equips students with language-learning competencies.

PARTNER SCH OLS Partner schools are vital to unlocking opportunity for our Scholars. Since its founding, Oliver has been committed to building long-term partnerships with rigorous and prestigious college preparatory schools. As Oliver expanded the number of Scholars admitted in 2017, we sought to deepen our existing relationships with consortium schools and to build new ones. Our Middle School Placement Program, for example, has opened up new opportunities to work with K-9 schools in New York City. Working with a diversity of consortium schools increases the likelihood that our Scholars will find a school that best fits their needs. Our 70 partner schools are wholly committed to our mission and vision, as evidenced by the significant financial investment they make in our Scholars every year.

“Our Oliver Scholars have added their distinctive voices to classroom discussions and taken conversations to new and profound levels.

COLLEGE SCHOLARS Oliver’s college-related support now spans from the beginning of the college application process through to college graduation, as Scholars look to jumpstart their careers. In 2017, we continued to provide SAT and ACT preparation and took more than 40 Scholars to explore 20 different college campuses. Oliver continues to employ an analytical approach to aligning our Scholars’ academic profiles and interests with data available from schools about the types of students they are seeking. Our College Scholars have access to improved guidance so that they are equipped to take full advantage of campus-based resources and coaching to help them leverage the power of their college, high school, and Oliver networks. Oliver’s work ensures that as Scholars graduate college and join the ranks of Oliver Alumni, they have the experiences and cultural capital required to successfully enter the workforce, be leaders in their organizations, and become change agents in their respective fields.

OUR SUPPORTERS

ALUMNI C UNCIL The Alumni Council’s primary objective in 2017 was to spearhead efforts to reengage the broader Alumni community. The Council successfully led a variety of initiatives, including a cocktail reception that brought together Alumni from the Classes of 1991 through 2012, many of whom were reconnecting after many years; a networking event at LinkedIn’s New York headquarters; and a credit workshop by AltoCredit Advisors LLC. Throughout the year, Alumni participation at student programs and events also increased, whether to dispense career advice at Tuesday Talks or Career Day, or to support and encourage new Scholars as part of Oliver’s Mentor Program. The Council and the broader community continued to exhibit their commitment to Oliver’s mission with contributions to the Alumni Challenge and other giving opportunities.
