Mentoring student-athletes 

About Us

Our Mission

The mission of Boston Athletic Academy (BAA) is to educate and train underprivileged student-athletes in an environment that recognizes their culture, language, customs, and most importantly their growth potential as individuals. BAA will provide assistance to student athletes to enable them to thrive in and out the classroom. We aim to build strong ties with local communities and plan to partner with local schools, businesses, and organizations to assist us in guiding our student-athletes.

Our Development Plan

The core of Boston Athletic Academy will be our membership and mentoring program, offering student athletes of all ages afterschool training in the sport of their choice, combined with intensive academic tutoring – both content and skill based – at the appropriate grade level. Members will participate in our academic success program, designed to prepare student-athletes for the rigors of college coursework while providing guidance and assistance throughout the college application process, including standardized test preparation, college visits and interviews, and writing application essays. We will work individually with each of our members to develop a plan for college and career readiness that best fits their academic and athletic goals.

Our college planning program will:

Provide support throughout the college search and application process, beginning in ninth grade

Help student-athletes fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

Facilitate communication between college advisors, student-athletes, and family

Engage college admissions staff on behalf of student-athletes

Offer private tutoring in any high school subject and for SAT, ACT, and SAT II subject tests

Build a profile for each applicant, including a highlight video and academic transcripts
