Thanks to a generous $5,000 grant from the Arvest Foundation, Bartlesville Public Schools and Bartlesville Education Promise have partnered with On the Rock Creamery to introduce an exciting new program designed to empower 9th grade students as they begin their high school journey. The Youth Development Program offers specialized academic support and access to caring teachers, mentors, and counselors, all within a small and supportive learning environment. Students will attend classes daily at the new Youth Development Center and will even have the chance to partake in the Creamery's popular ESports gaming program. With this innovative program, students will be set up for success in all areas of their academic and personal lives.
