Battier Guide Camden Logo

Overview

Battier Guide Camden was started in 2022 thanks to the incredible partnership of Daryl Morey, President of Basketball Operations for the Philadelphia 76ers and his wife Ellen, a BTCF Board Member. Select high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from Camden Academy Charter High School participate in twice-weekly college preparatory classes, individualized career exploration, and professional networking events. Each student completes the Battier Guide curriculum and upon successful completion receives a $10,000 scholarship for post-graduate studies. Beyond the Morey's partnership, Battier Guide Camden has partnered with the the Sixers, Drexel University, Shreiber School of Veterinary Medicine at Rowan University, the Philadelphia Phillies, the US District Court for the District of New Jersey, and more. As of June 2024, 30 students have successfully completed the Battier Guide Camden Program, with 100% furthering their education beyond high school. To date, BTCF has awarded $315,000 in scholarships to Battier Guide-Camden students. For the '24-'25 school year, Battier Guide Camden will serve 46 students, and anticipates graduating 17 students in spring 2025.
