Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics

Often called “Olympics of the Mind”, the mission of ACT-SO is to recognize, prepare, and reward African-American youth who exemplify scholastic and artistic excellence.

ACT-SO is designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students.

ACT-SO is a yearlong enrichment program for high school students (grades 9 through 12) of African descent which culminates in a competition through which youth demonstrate prowess in over 30 categories, including science, humanities, performing and visual arts, and entrepreneurship.

In August, local programs kick-off annual ACT-SO activities, with informational meetings and registrations for students and parents!
