The Williams Darrow program will have a faculty of eight drawn from leading Independent schools As Well As from High school in disadvantaged Rural and Urban areas.

Two of the resident tutors will be seniors at Darrow the remainder will be juniors and seniors from Williams. A major reason for locating an Abc program in this area is the cultural opportunities available in the berkshires. Students tutors and faculty and their families will be attending Tanglewood concerts the Williamstown summer theatre and will visit such institutions As the Clark Art Institute As an integral part of the Abc program. Theists grew out of a concern among Many of the country a leading Independent Board ing schools that they were not doing All they could to assist promising students who had ability but lacked the resources and advantages needed to develop their Talent. In 1963, some 21 of the nations leading boarding schools led the Way in establishing scholarship spaces within their schools for promising students from disadvantaged backgrounds. It soon became apparent that some transitional academic and social orientation would be necessary to prepare the students for Entrance into the ninth and tenth grades of boarding school. To meet this problem eight week summer sessions were organized with admission to the participating boarding schools in the fall contingent upon successful completion of the summer tutoring program. Dartmouth College ran the first summer Abc program for 55 selected students in 1964. Last year mount Holyoke joined the Abc program with a summer school for 60 girls while the Dartmouth Abc program expanded to 80. Both will operate again this summer. New Abc programs for this year will be a co educational program at Carleton College and one at Duke University in addition to the Williams Darrow program which will primarily serve the younger boys.
