HBCU may open boarding school for black males

HBCU may open boarding school for black males
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on July 06, 2009

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Kentucky State University President Mary Sias says the school is trying to find funding to open a boarding school for black males.

Sias told The State Journal of Frankfort that the proposal is part of an initiative to increase the number of black men who earn college diplomas. She says high school students would live in campus dorms, have their own teachers and an on-site principal at the historically black college in Frankfort.

The pilot program could start in the fall of 2010 if KSU receives enough federal and grant funding. Sias says there would be room for 30 to 50 high school students to participate.
