SPEF’s Student-Athlete Program provides academic support to student-athletes from Stamford High School and Westhill High School. Approximately 60 student-athletes from each high school are supported through Knight Life (Stamford High School) and Purple PACT (Westhill High School).These student-athletes meet with SPEF volunteers after school, either one-on-one or in small groups, to foster academic, athletic, social, and emotional growth. SPEF volunteers work together with the students to create a plan based on the student’s individual needs that enforces accountability and provides the students with the resources necessary to thrive.
SPEF is continuing to monitor the guidance and policies related to the COVID-19 pandemic being offered by the CDC, the State of Connecticut and the Stamford Public Schools to assess the potential of administering the Student-Athlete Program for the 2020 – 2021 school year. We will continue to update the website with more information as these policies develop in preparation for the start of the school year.
