    On Saturday, July 14, 18 Boston Day and Evening Academy (BDEA) students returned from a 2-week voyage aboard the historic Roseway schooner.

    World Ocean School operates the 93-year-old Roseway schooner to provide educational, hands-on programs to underserved students, challenging them academically, physically, and emotionally.

    Throughout the excursion, the BDEA students learned all aspects of tall ship sailing, including navigation, standing watch, and maintenance and upkeep.

    Two BDEA educators also joined the trip, teaching a history course that posed the question: “Why do people take risks for freedom and opportunity?” In answering the question, students used case studies of immigrants coming to America via Ellis Island, the historical accounts of escaped slaves in New Bedford, and their own risk-taking aboard the Roseway.

    What a wonderful #summerlearning opportunity for our students!

    Posted by Xavier Andrews on 7/17/2018

    Boston Public Schools students are learning and having fun both inside and outside the classroom this summer.

    Students from Mildred Avenue K-8, TechBoston Academy, and Young Achievers Science & Math K-8 Pilot School have the opportunity to participate in the Harlem Lacrosse program during the summer!

    Harlem Lax aims to empower children most vulnerable to challenges so that they may reach their full potential. The program emphasizes team culture, perseverance, grit, and confidence. The Harlem Lacrosse mission is for these qualities to translate directly into the classroom and students’ personal lives.

    Thanks to Harlem Lacrosse Adrian Heneveld for these great photos of our students taking part in the 5th Quarter of learning!
