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.
