BSAP Saturday Math Academy

The Howard County Public School System’s BSAP Saturday Math Academy (BSAP-SMA) has been in existence since 1992. The concept began from a need voiced by parents who wanted their children to receive an “extra push” in mathematics. Parents felt their children needed a more intimate setting to have their skills identified by certified teachers. Parents also requested opportunities to meet other parents and learn strategies to help their children with mathematics at home.

The BSAP-SMA is designed to accelerate academic achievement in mathematics in a unique setting regardless of a student’s academic level. Parents have the opportunity to identify achievement goals for their child at registration.
