Saturday Math Academy

Program Overview

The Howard County Public School System’s BSAP Saturday Math Academy (BSAP-SMA) has been in existence since 1992. The “Academy” is a result of collaboration between HCPSS and parents and developed as a response to parental requests for opportunities to network with other parents while also learning instructional mathematical strategies to support their children at home. Today’s delivery model serves as an extension of its earlier model. BSAP-SMA is designed to accelerate academic achievement for all students. When registering students for the program, parents identify achievement goals.
