How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Foundation is the principal private funding vehicle for offering academic excellence and opportunity to all students at B-CC HS, regardless of family circumstances. Grants totaling almost $1.4 million over the past fifteen years have enabled the school to offer academic support to students, starting with the summer before their freshman year and continuing throughout their high school years. The support enables students to stretch themselves to reach their academic potential and to get the help they need to pursue post-secondary education options.

The incoming 9th graders work on English, math, and study skills, and 10th graders learn to identify possible post-high school options and learn to use school resources to explore those choices. A follow-up mentoring program provides continuous support during the school year to the Summer Academy participants and others who have been identified as not achieving their fullest potential.
