SLJ is a public high school that serves a population of low-income students of color—70% of them live at or below the poverty line, and 75% will be the first in their family to go to college. SLJ does not screen its students, meaning that it accepts incoming 9th graders irrespective of academic ability, and through its three pillars of education—intensive academic instruction, robust enrichment offerings woven into the curriculum, and individualized college preparatory support—gives them the tools to create a brighter future for themselves. Most students arrive in 9th grade with a 4th or 5th grade reading level, but by 11th grade more than 90% pass the English Common Core exam. Last year, 95% of the senior class graduated and 90% went on to enroll in college.
Brooklyn Law School has partnered with SLJ since its inception. The Student Bar Association has been committed to helping raise funds to deliver the enrichment programming and college and career services that the school would not otherwise have the resources to provide.
Donations in support of the runners/walkers can be made through SLJ's non-profit partner, the Adams Street Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Cash and checks will be accepted on the day of the race.
