The Black Student Achievement Program had a successful year filled with various activities, field trips, and aiding seniors with their college applications.

BSAP was initially started by the Los Angeles Unified School District in 2021, aiming to help Black students achieve success throughout high school and beyond. 

“BSAP is such a good program to learn about black culture and do fun activities,” Paris Rhene, a BSAP junior. “ BSAP is not just for African-American students, it’s for any student who wants to learn more about black history and wants to learn more about the program.”

This year’s juniors got the opportunity to visit Historically Black Colleges and Universities in both Atlanta and Alabama . They visited such universities as Tuskegee University, Clark Atlanta University, and Alabama State University.

“The coolest thing was that every tour guide from each school we visited had so much pride and spirit for their school,” said Alonzo Jones, the assistant principal. “This was a great experience for students, who have never been out of California as they got to see different parts of the country.” 

If students are interested in joining BSAP, they can sign up through Ms.Nezu in room 300. Meetings are from 1:30-2:00 p.m. each week.
