Get Involved


Your generosity helps ABC New Canaan provide life-changing opportunities for gifted scholars, ignite their boundless potential, and make their dreams of college a reality. 

I feel nothing but blessed to have been part of ABC and the New Canaan community. During my four years here, I got an incredible education, a wonderful second family, and steps closer to becoming the man I want to be.  Most importantly,
I got a promising future.
