“So much of what we do begins with helping Schuler Scholars commit to the effort to get accepted into top colleges. From there you want them to believe that it will happen.”
Jack Schuler

“Often, a Scholar drops by our office who’s now a surgeon or a lawyer or an entrepreneur. It’s incredibly gratifying to hear their stories of success.”
