    Project Achieve is a 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) program funded by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE).  Project Achieve (PA) provides one hour of uninterrupted academic instruction in core subject areas (Reading and Math), STEM, Social-Emotional Learning, and Homework Assistance.  

    Since PGCPS has moved to the distance learning model due to the COVID-19 school closures, Project Achieve teachers and administrators want to assure you that we are still working to support Drew-Freeman MS students.  Homework Assistance, Tutorial Sessions, STEM activities, and Interactive Social Emotional Learning (SEL) support will be provided through our Project Achieve Google Classroom for the remainder of the program duration concluding in mid-May.  We encourage you to take advantage of these free resources.
