Sayre High School


William L. Sayre High School serves grades 9-12 with the intent “to create and sustain a positive academic and social-emotional environment, which enables students to develop the skills required to thrive globally, but serve locally.” Sayre emphasizes College Access and Career Readiness programming (CACR), which provides help with everything from SAT prep to senior projects to college and career applications. Programming is fueled by several University of Pennsylvania partnerships, including CSSP, Out-of-School Time (OST), Urban Nutrition Initiative, Sayre Health Center Collaborative, Mural Arts Program, Moelis Access Science, and other Netter Center Programs.

CSSP mentors play an important role in supporting after school activities for students: as tutors, role models, and friends. Mentors offer SAT tutoring, sports programming, college and career readiness workshops, one-on-one and walk-in tutoring, creative writing, and so much more. Sayre students are incredible people with infinite amounts of potential, and we’re there to support them in planning their promising futures. This semester also marks the start of a new program, Leaders for Change, which aims to encourage and foster student leadership through social action. CSSP programming at Sayre has grown tremendously over the past years, and we look forward to continuing to build a system of resources and opportunities for students.
