BATA is a high school diploma program where students learn through student-centered instruction based upon assignments and projects with clearly defined academic standards and benchmarks. Sheltered English Instruction (SEI) and the Workshop model are instructional strategies used throughout the school, helping to increase literacy and provide rich and rigorous content for students mastering English. Students are provided with challenging instruction in core subject areas -- Mathematics, English/ESL, Science, Social Studies -- and they compile, present, and defend a portfolio that exhibits their learning development across these subjects. Students apply their knowledge and skills to real-world projects and other learning activities.

Any student and Boston resident, age 18-22, is eligible to attend BATA. Students should visit the school (2nd floor of the Madison Park Building) to receive a letter to take to the Family Resource Center. After being assigned through the Family Resource Center students will take a placement exam and then receive their schedule of classes. This process usually takes 3 days.

Mission: 

Health Leads (formerly Project HEALTH) is a national non-profit with the goal that one day, all doctors will be able to prescribe solutions that improve health, not just manage disease. The diagnosis and treatment of non-medical, but health-critical, conditions should be a standard part of patient care. In clinics where our Health Leads program operates, physicians can “prescribe” food, housing, health insurance, job training, fuel assistance, or other resources for their patients as routinely as they do medication. Located in waiting rooms and staffed by college volunteers, our Health Leads volunteers “fill” these prescriptions by connecting patients with key resources. Health Leads’ straightforward, preventative referrals to government and community resources – such as affordable housing, child care, employment, GED classes, and job training – enable families to avert crises and to access increased income and education, which have been documented to result in better long-term health outcomes. Health Leads‘ 22 desks are located in pediatric outpatient, adolescent, and prenatal clinics, newborn nurseries, pediatric emergency rooms, health department clinics, and federally qualified health centers. Last year we reached nearly 6,000 families.
