Helping students succeed
in school and beyond.

College ready. Work ready. Life ready.

New Hampshire Scholars is a community-based program that encourages students to take a rigorous Core Course of Study in high school. Whatever path students take, a strong high school education can help them achieve their goals. New Hampshire Scholars gives students a roadmap for gaining the skills and knowledge they need to succeed—in college, careers, and community life.

Local business leaders and school districts work with New Hampshire Scholars to set standards, promote learning, and recognize student achievement. Statewide support comes from the New Hampshire College & University Council and the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Inspiring Student Achievement

New Hampshire Scholars works with schools across the state to set strong academic goals for students. We know that all students, not just a select few, have the potential to excel in school. Our program provides solid structures and incentives for students to challenge themselves to reach their full potential.

Every year we reach thousands of students in districts throughout the Granite State:
