The 9/10 Movement: Maximizing Student Potential

Inspiring and Developing Future Memphis Leaders

The goal of the 9/10 program is to expose students to the skills and knowledge needed to perform at a high level of academic and community leadership. Students who successfully complete the 9/10 program will be advised to apply to the Memphis Challenge and become a part of the larger applicant pool of juniors.


We expect to:

  • Increase the cognitive skills, knowledge level and cultural capacity of students with leadership potential
  • Reduce the achievement gap for students with high performing potential but lack resources to ensure their competitiveness in national and international academic and professional markets
  • Develop a better sense of awareness of the requirements for academic and leadership excellence
  • Infuse a stronger pool of students from the Memphis metro area who are college bound
