We are fortunate to partner with six of the most prestigious college preparatory high schools in the Dallas area. Participating high schools are Bishop Lynch High School, The Episcopal School of Dallas, Greenhill School, The Hockaday School, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, and Ursuline Academy of Dallas. Each high school provides at least four student mentors and a host campus for the academic sections.
