About Us

The MERIT Health Leadership Academy is a comprehensive academic and career mentorship program supporting high school students from underrepresented backgrounds who aspire to have careers in health.

As an Out-of-School Time program, MERIT provides Saturday College Prep Classes, Professional Internships, College Admissions Guidance, and Longitudinal Mentorship, empowering them with additional opportunities and resources.

Families Leading The Way

MERIT scholars thrive when their household and MERIT families come together as one. We recognize the importance of family in supporting our scholars' mental and physical health throughout our high school program and beyond, and have made intentional efforts to build community with our scholars' families and supporters.

Through MERIT's Family Leadership Council, our families come together to collaborate, advocate, and, ultimately, build a community that supports the success of all MERIT Scholars. Every quarter, we hold family engagement workshops where families connect with one another, share successes and challenges they have had, learn what is going on with MERIT, and create ways for how to best support their scholars.
