The BESt program is known for its commitment to fostering educational growth and personal development in students. Operating from the Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis (Monday through Friday) marks a significant milestone in the program’s mission to empower students with the skills and knowledge necessary for success in a healthcare career. Through a dynamic curriculum of hands-on, interactive, and FUN college preparatory programming, students will not only enhance their academic skills but also develop essential life skills crucial for success in college and beyond.

Holding the BESt program on the Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis allows us to offer rising seniors the full college experience.
