The Paul Robeson Academic International School of Excellence (P.R.A.I.S.E.) College Readiness Program was founded by Dr. LaMarr Darnell Shields, and is a direct response to the unfortunate trend of academic failure amongst African American males. P.R.A.I.S.E. is a Saturday academy, offering academic and cultural enrichment programming to secondary students in Baltimore City during the school year. Additionally, an intensive leadership bootcamp is offered during the summer to enhance the young men's ability to take ownership for self and community.
P.R.A.I.S.E. helps students realize their maximum potential by enhancing their chances for academic success. Classes, programming, enrichment and mentoring provide students with opportunities for skill development designed to improve aptitude in writing, reading, and mathematics.
