Using squash, academics, mentoring and life skills development, MetroSquash supports students in finding and graduating from their best-fit post-secondary pursuit. This starts as early as 5th grade and can span a student's entire adolescence. Our pathway approach fosters a strong community of support and relationships that blossom over a period of years and so far has yielded a 100% college acceptance rate among our students. Students in 5th through 12th grade learn the fast-paced game of squash, improve their academic performance, perform community service and participate in the MetroSquash mentor program.
