New Programs Provide Academic Support

The Crawford High Invention & Design Educational Academy (IDEA) has established two new programs designed to provide academic support for students. Through a partnership with Bayview Charities, the school has established Realizing Individual Skills & Knowledge (R.I.S.K.), an African-American mentoring program designed to increase academic performance, self-esteem and emotional development in students. The Math, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Program is designed to provide academic support through hands-on projects and college awareness activities. IDEA will begin working with MESA on projects focused on Engineering. Both programs aim to increase opportunity and achievement for students.
