SWI wants to congratulate Shamya on her acceptance into the first-ever class of 5th grade applicants into Pathfinder. Our own Diamond member Shamya Kerr was awarded a scholarship to attend a 5-week summer enrichment program, known as Pathfinder at a very prestigious school in New Haven, CT known as Hopkins School.
Established in 1992, Pathfinder Hopkins School (formerly known as “Breakthrough New Haven”) is a two-year academic enrichment program that provides middle school students with the academic skills and intellectual confidence required to thrive in college preparatory high schools. Hopkins School, the 3rd oldest independent school in the country, has a distinguished history that spans more than 350 years. Hopkins is an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school for grades 7-12.
Shamya is 11 years old in the 5th grade and currently attends John Martinez Magnet School, New Haven, Connecticut. She continues to earn high honors throughout her school years.
