The Scholars Elite Youth Basketball Academy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides a year-round, comprehensive program for youth participants grades 4th through12th. The program focuses not only on basketball but academic achievement and support, civic engagement, financial literacy and emotional health programs to help prepare them to succeed and grow to meet their true and desired potential. The predecessor organization was originally founded in 2007 as the KSK Youth Basketball Club and achieved prominence by becoming a mainstay in the NJ community and winning national recognition with many of its middle school and younger programs.
Our mission is to help young adults and their families pursue excellence in all facets of their lives using competitive basketball as a platform. This pursuit of excellence encompasses academics, citizenship and sportsmanship.
