Project ALERTA

Project ALERTA provides enrichment programs for Latino students and English Language Learners in grades 3 through 5 in the Boston Public Schools (BPS) for the primary purpose of helping improve their academic skills. The program implements a project-based, thematic curriculum that creatively weaves together core academic subjects with activities such as theater, drawing and painting, technology, scientific experiments, creative writing, and dance. The goal of Project ALERTA is that all Latino and English Language Learner students in Boston Public Schools will have the opportunity to achieve success in one of the Boston Public Schools’ exam schools or high achieving middle and high schools, attend college, and become an engaged citizen in their community.
