Humann Scholars Program Overview
Humann Scholars participate in the program during their 6th, 7th and 8th grade years to build confidence, independence and leadership skills through peer mentoring, social experiences, academic tutoring, life skills lessons and one-on-one support. Scholars attend an annual four-week Summer Academy as well as biweekly Saturday Academies throughout the school year. If a student successfully participates in these programs, applies and is accepted to Sion High School during their 8th grade year, they are welcomed to Sion High School through a fully-funded scholarship. Humann Scholars enrolled at the High School actively participate in the Humann Scholars Leadership Council whose members help to plan and lead activities and to mentor the younger Scholars. Humann Scholars from diverse cultures and backgrounds learn from each other, about each other and grow into their true selves ready for college and beyond.
“I was super excited for the summer program, not only to help the middle school girls learn about Sion and have an amazing fun time, but also because the leadership position I’m in is helping me to become more confident about myself and leading others.” -- Arleth Guevara, Humann Scholar Leadership Council ‘24
