At the start of this year, 3Point joined a select group of after-school programs by being selected as a Opportunity Priority Partner by the Boston Public Schools (“BPS”)following an extensive evaluation of our programing, personnel and educational philosophy.
Opportunity Priority Partners are viewed by BPS as being in the top tier of after-school programs offered by nonprofits in the Boston Public Schools. BPS encourages schools to enter into partnerships with Priority Partners and provides financial incentives to schools with the most under-served students to work with Priority Partners. 3Point is one of only twenty after-school education programs designated as an Opportunity Priority Partner.
Earlier this year, 3Point was also selected as one of the 51 summer learning academies recognized by the Boston Public Schools. BPS made this selection as part of its Fifth Quarter Program. The Fifth Quarter Program encourages BPS students to attend summer learning academies to narrow the achievement gap between under-served students from urban areas and their more affluent peers. It is remarkable for a program as relatively young as ours to be selected as an Opportunity Priority Partner and Summer Learning Partner by the Boston Public Schools. We thank all of those at 3Point who madethis possible
