The E. E. Smith High School 100 Academy History
The 100 Academy is a mentoring program for students ages 14 – 17 at E. E. Smith High School. It was born out of a need to help students find some direction on the road to success during their Educational careers and throughout their lives. Through a collaborative effort of the 100 Black Men Inc. Cape Fear Region Chapter and the administrative staff of E. E. Smith High School this program began in the fall of the 2011 school year. The 100 Black Men of America Inc. is a National organization of professional Black Men recognized as an authority in mentoring. The 100 fosters the belief that “What They See Is What They Will Be”.
The EESHS 100 Academy mentoring program has grown from 10 young men as freshman in 2011 to over 30 freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. In 2014 10 young ladies from the Junior and Senior classes were added to the 100 Academy mentoring program which made this an all-inclusive mentoring program. Our program focuses on education, leadership, relationships, academy tutoring, Goal setting, Health / wellness, strategic academic / professional planning, career development planning and community service projects. Through meaningful discussions, professional speakers, educational field trips, exposure to real life careers and real time community service projects the 100 Academy will have great success in reaching our goal. The Academy meets each Monday morning during the Jump Start period. Students for this exciting program were recommended by the school administration and guidance department.
It is our intent that through the experience of the 100 Academy our students will develop the mindset that they can “Rise to any Challenge … because … Failure is not an option” for them.
