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.

Thanks so much to all who joined us at the B-CC Educational Foundation's annual event on March 8th! It was great to see so many supporters gathered to honor CollegeTracks founders Cathie Goltz, Nancy Leopold and Nancy Zeller. There's more about the evening below, including a video link, so in case you missed it the first time around, you can still catch  the action. 


The B-CC Educational Foundation's primary focus is B-CC, but because Westland MS is B-CC's only feeder school, we have close ties with that community as well. As many of you know, this is Westland principal Danny Vogelman's last year at the school, and we wish him and his family well as they embark on their North Carolina adventure. We caught up with Danny recently and asked him to reflect on some of the Foundation's programs - see story and click on the video link below!


Finally, we are delighted to offer a solution to those of you who might have left your Mother's Day gift planning to the last possible minute! Read on, but act quickly, because the flowers must be ordered by COB Thursday, May 10th (that's tomorrow).


As always, we welcome your feedback, your ideas, and your support!

Wonderful Evening Celebrates CollegeTracks!

CollegeTracks AwardeesA terrific crowd turned out for the B-CC Educational Foundation's recent spring fundraiser and celebration of CollegeTracks, one of the Foundation's three signature programs.   Funded by an initial $1,500 grant from the B-CC HS Educational Foundation, CollegeTracks seeks to level the college admissions and financial aid playing field among B-CC students. The Foundation now provides $50,000 annually to support this amazing effort!

Westland 's Danny Vogelman Speaks Out!
After over ten years at Westland Middle School, the last six as Principal, Danny Vogelman recently announced that he is heading to North Carolina to act as Assistant Superintendent for the Wilson school system. Recently, the Montgomery County Board of Education appointed Mrs.Alison Serino the new Principal of Westland. Mrs. Serino is currently the Principal at A. Mario Loiderman Middle School, a magnet school for the creative and performing arts in Silver Spring, Maryland. Before we let Danny head South, however, we caught up with him and got his perspective on the importance of the work of the Foundation.
