Welcome to Fayetteville Manlius A Better Chance!

The Fayetteville-Manlius A Better Chance Program ( F-M ABC) is affiliated with A Better Chance, a national, non-profit, academic talent search organization with the mission to increase the number of well-educated young people of color ready to assume positions of responsibility and leadership.

Our scholars are offered the chance to learn in an exceptional educational program, to participate in extra-curricular activities including, but not limited to, the arts, athletics, clubs, and community service, and to develop confidence and independence as they prepare for college and a successful future as active, effective contributors to society, all while living in a family-like environment, supported by their parents, staff, board members, teachers and host families. Our program is located in a 200 year old house in the center of Manlius, NY.

The Fayetteville-Manlius community is enriched by the talent, energy and diversity of our exceptional scholars.
