Signature Programs

The Foundation underwrites three major academic support programs:

  • Time for Academic Progress (TAP) offers after-school academic assistance in English, math, and science at all levels provided by B-CC teachers three days a week at B-CC and two evenings a week at the Coffield Center in Silver Spring.
  • CollegeTracks provides after-school and evening workshops, as well as trained mentors, to help with the college application and financial aid process for students who, although qualified, may be at risk of not going to college
  • Summer Academy is a three-week summer program for incoming 9th grade students who have struggled academically in middle school. Students work on English, math, science, study skills, and general school issues.

You can read more about these programs by clicking on the links above, and we'll be highlighting them in future issues as well.

Welcome to the inaugural e-newsletter of the B-CC High School Educational Foundation! The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that all B-CC students, regardless of background or financial circumstance, receive the support they need to be successful, find a pathway to college, and pursue their dreams.


This is an exciting and challenging mandate, and through this newsletter, we hope to keep you informed about all the programs the Foundation supports. Foundation-funded programs touch the lives of almost every B-CC student, but too often are unrecognized, or simply taken for granted. We're out to change that!


Each month, we'll send you a short update on what's new, and highlight the accomplishments and work of our volunteers, our donors, and the students we serve. We think it's inspiring, and hope you will too.


We welcome your feedback, your ideas, and your support!

"We are very pleased to be able to support the Foundation because the students at B-CC are our next generation of leaders and we are happy to help contribute to their success," said David M. Smith, president of The Chevy Chase Land Company.  "The passion for learning and skills they acquire in high school will help to shape our future as a community."


Foundation Supporters "Gave to the Max"
On Wednesday, November 9th, thousands of area residents showed their support for their favorite nonprofit for Give to the Max Day: Greater Washington. The B-CC High School Educational Foundation was proud to participate in this one day only, on-line event.

We are so grateful for the support that we received from our community! The Foundation raised $5,070 from 43 donors. We ranked 79th in dollars raised of the 1,285 charities that participated and were in the top ten of Montgomery County fundraisers.
