SBSOS is committed to the academic success of each of our students. Our goal is that every SBSOS completes high school, enrolls in and graduates from college or vocational school, or has a good plan for his/her future. We achieve this goal through intensive academic support and enrichment from 5th grade to high school graduation - and beyond.
At SBSOS we believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the community. All students in the program participate in a minimum of at least 15 hours of service each year - many of our students complete more than 60 hours each year. Community service provides the opportunity for our students to learn about the many nonprofits in Santa Barbara, and to see that we can make the world a better place by helping others.
Team members participate in physical activities three to four days a week throughout the school year and throughout the summer. The squash program consists of on-court instruction from a squash professional and off court training. Students have the opportunity to travel to tournaments as well. Nutrition and healthy living are also important pieces of the program.
Students are required to to participate in a minimum of 100 hours of academic curriculum, 100 hours of squash activity, and at least 15 hours of community service every year. Students spend a lot of time with us and we are able to help to provide activities that are engaging and enriching - and FUN!
