Core Components of Educational Support
Homework Help is structured time for students to complete their schoolwork, get additional tutoring in a subject they find challenging, or simply have an adult look over their homework. It is available to all Snider students and is designed to help struggling students and give our high flyers the opportunity to achieve even more. These drop-in sessions are offered at each rink to make academic assistance easily accessible to all students.
99.6% of our students successfully matriculate from one grade level to the next, which keeps them on-track for on-time graduation. Remarkably, this happens in the same inner-city neighborhoods and schools that graduate less than 70% of their students enrolled in the ninth grade.

My Snider tutors help me understand my homework assignments and prepare for tests better.”View Full Testimonial
My Snider tutors always take the time to explain new things and help me correct my mistakes. They help me understand things that were hard for me when school was remote learning. Grammar and math were most difficult for me this school year. My tutors help me understand my homework assignments and prepare for tests better. They are also always available to help in any way and are flexible with my sports schedule. One thing that I am most proud of this year is that I performed better on my national tests, and my math scores improved a lot.”01/30/2023

My kids have benefited so much from the academic support at Snider over the years. They did Reading Buddies from age 5 until they phased out. They have gotten so much homework help and tutoring over the years. There was one year Jonah did ALL of his homework at the after school program because I was getting frustrated. Keep up the great work!”02/08/2023

Snider has changed my life in so many ways, I could write a book about it.”View Full Testimonial
My dad often refers to Snider as a miracle for my brothers and me because it has given us lifelong friends, goal-oriented learning, and academic support that we don’t have at school. Snider provides us with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, including helping us go to high school and college, which we would not have been able to afford otherwise. Snider shows me how important an education, grades, and work-ethic are throughout adulthood. As a first-generation college student, I was always told that college would be important to securing a good job and being financially stable, but I never understood how to get there.
I chose to attend Neumann University for many reasons, including the Business program, the Women’s Ice Hockey team, and the resources on campus. Neumann’s location also offers a lot of opportunities for internships and continued involvement with Snider as an Alumni, which will ensure that I have a variety of career options in the future.
My biggest accomplishment this year was winning the 2020 Ed Snider Leadership Award. The achievement makes me feel hope for the future, which I have consistently strived to achieve. As a participant in the organization, I always find it imperative to hold myself to the high standard that my family and Snider have held me to throughout my life. I know that I will experience important life lessons in college that I will be able to pass down to students who follow in my footsteps.
The support and incentive that Snider provides students has helped me grow as a fully- rounded person that can empathize, compete, and grow with others, all of which are important in establishing myself in adulthood.”01/30/2023
