T ime for A cademic P rogress is an after-school program at B-CC for all students who seek to do better in their courses. It provides students with a structured place to work after school. B-CC teachers are available to help students with their homework, studying, projects, papers, etc. The program was in existence for mathematics for a couple of years before expanding to English, foreign Language, science and social studies in the 2004-2005 academic year. The expansion was in response to a survey of student leaders at the start of the 2004-2005 school year. The number one priority for the students was having extra time and more focused academic support for all students at all levels, from those struggling to succeed in grade-level courses to those who were taking advanced courses but need extra encouragement and support to succeed.
With funding from the B-CC High School Educational Foundation, TAP (Time for Academic Support) is now available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:40 to 3:40 p.m. in rooms C105 and C109. We offer support in English, Math, Science and Social Studies.
TAP is a "drop-in" program. Students may stop by for help with a particular question and leave after a few minutes or stay longer if they need additional help. They may come as often as they need.
