Minds Matter Denver



Minds Matter is a three-year program that begins in a student’s 10th grade of high school (after a rigorous recommendation, application, and selection process as 9th graders).

Minds Matter offers its students a combination of individualized mentor support, group instruction & college summer programs to provide students with the resources, information and guidance they need to gain admission to, enroll in and graduate from four-year colleges with scholarships. Minds Matter students join our program as sophomores in high school and receive the following during our weekly Monday sessions:

Individualized mentor support: focused support from two dedicated mentors every Monday throughout the academic year. Mentors and students build strong relationships and work together to help achieve the student’s academic and personal goals through the college selection, admittance, and financial aid processes.

Group academic instruction: in-class instruction focused on intensive writing, critical-thinking, and ACT prep from a third party partner.

Summer enrichment programs: opportunity to attend two rigorous summer academic programs at top-tier institutions to explore their educational interests.

Our Partnership

Denver Test Prep partnered with the Minds Matter team to develop a customized SAT prep program that will be implemented by Minds Matter staff and volunteers. This innovative program enabled Minds Matter to make a one-time investment that will position them to deliver a high quality SAT prep program for years to come using their own team for instruction and program implementation.
