WHAT IS STRIVE TO EXCEL?
Strive to Excel, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to serving as an educational facilitation system to enhance self-esteem, provide academic enrichment, and develop social skills in a diverse setting that will prepare students and their families to make informed decisions about post-secondary life and career choices.
The Strive to Excel Organization is proud to share with our Lowcountry community that as we enter into our 11th year of being in the business of selling “hope” to our Lowcountry youth, we have given nearly $350,000 scholarship dollars to our graduating senior members. It is our hope that as we have nurtured them throughout their school years that they stay on a successful path as they enter their post-secondary educational career.
It is fundraisers like this (Dancing with the local Stars) that help us raise these much needed scholarship dollars for our senior members. We are most appreciative and grateful for our dedicated community’s support and the support of our parents, our board, our mentors, and the faculty and staff at all of our Lowcountry public schools who embrace us and support our mission.
