Mission Statement

Support academic achievement through athletics

Description

The Boston Scholar Athletes program (BSA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support academic achievement through athletics. BSA was launched in the summer of 2009 with the support of Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Superintendent Dr. Carol Johnson, in response to a series of Boston Globe articles that identified deficiencies within the Boston Public School's athletic programming. With Suffolk Construction’s CEO John Fish as the founder, BSA is a program designed to reduce the opportunity gap in all 20 of the Boston Public High Schools. We believe there is a proven link between athletic participation and positive academic performance.
