Y Scholars is a program that is offered at Moreland during the weeks that Targeted Services are held thanks to a St. Paul Foundation Grant with additional funding from the YMCA in West. St. Paul. This program is a year-long commitment that aims at supporting students and their families to raise academic achievement.
Students who are members of the Y Scholars program attend after-school programming four days per week during the Targeted Services session. Students attend Moreland Magnet Academy classes on Mondays, Targeted Services classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and “Y Wednesdays” on Wednesdays. On Y Wednesdays students participate in activities such as: Creative Arts Class, Swim Safety Instruction at the YMCA, Physical, Healthy, and Driven Class, Service Learning Class and Academic Tutoring Support Class. Snacks and transportation are provided for all students who are enrolled in the Y Scholars program.
