SMASH Academy is a 3 year, intensive STEM focused college prep program that empowers students to deepen their talents and pursue STEM careers. Scholars are immersed in studies at leading universities throughout the country for a multi-week program each summer. During the academic year, scholars participate in monthly programming.

They are coached by instructors that represent the future they can have. Because of their common background, students connect more deeply with instructors and gain true mentorship from these STEM professors and industry professionals. As they go through the program, scholars not only develop their skills and network – they also find their voice and build the confidence to become who they want to be.
