An initiative with a special focus in STEM studies for our highest aspiring students.
We aspire to increase academic and personal enrichment opportunities for targeted high-achieving students from very low socioeconomic or homeless families. Through rigorous, rich and varied academic and non-academic programs, we seek to empower creative and analytical thinking, giving these students the necessary skills to be able to continue their studies at an accredited college or university in the STEM fields.
The FBHonors initiative was started in 2012 to help the highest achieving students reach their full potential. Heavily centered on STEM programming, the FBHonors program has been greatly influenced by Embry Riddle Aeronautical University's STEM Outreach Club which has visited FBHonors campuses showing students educational opportunities in STEM fields and providing organized activities on its campus.
The goal of the FBHonors initiative is to cultivate the talent of high achieving students, in small class settings, through rigorous, varied enhanced opportunities designed to navigate them through high-school, help them enroll in college, and, in doing so, lead them on a path to success.
FBHonors meets multiple times a week. The students in the program are selected based on their academic promise and their desire to commit to its rigor.
FBHonors was started in memory of Farshad Babazadeh who was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 18 through a grant by Farshad's parents, Mansour and Simin Babazadeh.
