Welcome To A Better Chance Of Westport

“I Know My Limits But I Don’t Limit Myself.”
— Rhyse McLean, SHS '13

Since 2002, A Better Chance of Westport has been giving motivated, outstanding minority youth, the opportunity to achieve their dreams through education.  With the support of their families, our scholars apply to this life-changing program in the hope of achieving a better future.  It is our belief that these young men, through their experiences while attending Staples High School, one of Connecticut's and the nation's top performing high schools, and in their involvement with the Westport community, will become successful members of society, capable of leading the way not only for themselves but also for others who will follow.
