Academic Tutors K-12
The A Team Academic Enrichment Program provides learning support to students in Baltimore City in grades K-12. The “A” Team program was developed to supplement the Baltimore City school curriculum. Our students grow academically through inquiry based learning and activities that focus on Science, Technology, English, Art, and Math. The program aims to produce independently thinking and acting individuals. Our mission is to nurture the development of youth in grades K-12 by providing a quality after school program that is fun, safe, and accessible. Students will have the opportunity to complete homework, create, explore, and solve problems together. As part of the program we will educate the students, parents, and staff on ways to build a stronger community.
