A handful of kids are better prepared for school, thanks to a new non-profit called 'Be Real'.
The organization has finished its two-week summer enrichment program, which helped students with math, as well as coached them on life skills.
They covered things like avoiding distractions, and keeping out of trouble in school.
Many of the grads said the biggest thing they learned was the importance of going to college.
"I wanted to be in this program so I can get my education and high school diploma and go to college." says fourth-grader Titus Scott.
"Believing that i can go to college and get a degree." is what fifth grader Zymir Faulkner says he got out of the program.
Many of the kids in the program are from the Westhaven and Friendship Court neighborhoods.
