Better Chance

A Better Chance is a college preparatory program that offers a challenging educational opportunity to academically talented, economically disadvantaged minority students who are determined to succeed.

A Better Chance in Lower Merion is part of the Community Schools Program (CSP) of the national A Better Chance organization.  CSPs give scholars an opportunity to attend a highly-ranked public school in a suburban setting. 

CSPs are run by a Board of Directors and supported financially by contributions from the community. 

Our scholars (all male) live in a house in Ardmore, PA and attend Lower Merion High School.  There are currently eight scholars and five staff members in residence.

We're holding our first ever 5K this Spring.  Click here for more details. Click here to register!

Please join the ABC-LM family at our Panera Bread Fundraising Night in Wynnewood on May 1st!
