What is Saturday School?
Community Youth Advance, in partnership with Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS), is proud to operate the Saturday School program during the academic school year. The mission of this extended learning program is to enhance student mastery of mathematics and to help prepare them for the challenges of college and careers. Research indicates that students who participate in high quality extended learning programs have improved academic performance, higher self-esteem, and greater self-confidence.
Who can attend?
PGCPS students in Grades 1 through 12 enrolled at High Point High School, Buck Lodge Middle School, Beltsville Academy, and Adelphi, Calverton, Carole Highlands, Cherokee Lane, Cool Spring, Langley Park-McCormick, and Mary Harris Mother Jones elementary schools can participate in the pilot program. Each school has been allotted a share of the 200 seats for the Saturday School program based on enrollment.
Where and when will Saturday School take place?
Saturday School will be held at High Point High School, located at 3601 Powder Mill Road in Beltsville, Maryland. The program will be held on Saturdays from 8a.m. to 11:30a.m. The first session will begin on October 21.
