TeenSHARP-Delaware student Amadou (a rising junior at William Penn HS -Colonial School District) just learned he has been accepted to attend the Carleton Liberal Arts Experience (CLAE) program at Carleton College (ranked #8 among liberal arts colleges) in Minnesota this summer! I don’t think he has stopped smiling since he received the news earlier this week!
Carleton College selects 52 students of color from across the nation for an all-expenses-paid summer program each year. The CLAE program introduces the strengths of a liberal arts education through an array of courses in science, art, social sciences, and technology. This year TeenSHARP had its largest group-three students- selected (two from TeenSHARP-NJ/PA) for the program!
Since 2011, 7 TeenSHARPies have been selected to attend CLAE, three students have gotten accepted into Carleton College, and 1 will be starting college at Carleton College this fall.
