school year 2017-2018 Impact Report

As Harlem Lacrosse students experience success on and off the field, they set new goals for themselves and engage in more positive behaviors in the pursuit of those goals.

1. Attendance


Students are more likely to be successful in school if they attend regularly. Chronic absenteeism is associated with a decease in on-time graduation, and an increase in drop out rate.

 5. Boarding & Independent School


Harlem Lacrosse is committed to helping each student pursue the right educational path for them. Attendance at a boarding or independent school can be a transformational experience for some students. Harlem Lacrosse assists these students with the admission process to these schools
