Clinton High School and the Village of Clinton, NY
We're proud to host one of just 22 ABC Community School Programs in the United States.
Clinton ABC, Since 1972
Founded by community members who shared the vision of preparing talented students of color for positions of responsibility and leadership in American society. Clinton and the Mohawk Valley residents have opened their hearts and homes as teachers, mentors, host families, coaches and especially as friends to the ABC scholars enrolled at Clinton High School. In turn, these extraordinary young men have contributed their talents, skills and perspectives in the classroom, on stage, on the field and in our community.
The program in Clinton has a long record of success. All Clinton ABC graduates – more than 90 – have been admitted to college and gone on to lead lives of consequence as doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers and businessmen.
Advantages to the Clinton ABC Program
with only about 100 students in each grade, teachers get to know their students well and students have more opportunities to join groups, organizations and sports teams.
