Greenville Renaissance Scholars

Samesa Hoskin
Executive Director
Greenville Renaissance Scholars

For more than 13 years, Greenville Renaissance Scholars has served students and families in the Greenville area with our educational programs during the summer and the school year.  Our School Year Program (SYP) is our flagship afterschool initiative for middle school students.  At SYP 2021-2022, students engage in four days of rigor each week, filled with enrichment in academics and the arts. One of the primary purposes of our School Year Program is to augment academic skills in math and science, English, reading, creative writing, and visual arts. We have a comprehensive resource package to incorporate innovative exploration of the arts, academics, and community service. 

We remain dedicated to the pursuit of equal opportunities and equitable education for all students in Greenville during the summer.  We welcome all students in the 6-9 grades to join us during Camp Renaissance. We can waive the program fee with an application so that summer camp is completely free for the lucky scholar.  We offer rigorous academic programming in STEM, English and creative writing, visual arts, and choir/instrumentation. 

We also provide exposure to higher education with field trips to universities, national landmarks, and museums.  Overall, our School Year Program and Camp Renaissance give us an intentional blend of intensive academic instruction and a healthy dose of art and leadership skills development.  Call us at 662-771-1067 for more information, or contact us online at
