ABOUT BAA

BOSTON ATHLETIC ACADEMY

The mission of Boston Athletic Academy (BAA) is to educate and train underprivileged student-athletes in an environment that recognizes their culture, language, customs, and most importantly their growth potential as individuals. BAA will provide assistance to student athletes to enable them to thrive in and out the classroom. We aim to build strong ties with local communities and plan to partner with local schools, businesses, and organizations to assist us in guiding our student-athletes.

"Manny and I genuinely relate to the youth that we mentor. Being a minority youth in this big city of ours has its challenges and obstacles, but the adults around us held us to high standards and encouraged us to rise above the noise through education and sports. It's only right that we pay it forward with today's youth. They're not just the future of our Boston, but society as a whole."

- Jose Diaz, BAA Chief Executive Officer -

The core of Boston Athletic Academy will be our membership and mentoring program, offering student athletes of all ages after school training in the sport of their choice, combined with intensive academic tutoring – both content and skill based – at the appropriate grade level. Members will participate in our academic success program, designed to prepare student-athletes for the rigors of college coursework while providing guidance and assistance throughout the college application process, including standardized test preparation, college visits, and interviews, and writing application essays. We will work individually with each of our members to develop a plan for college and career readiness that best fits their academic and athletic goals.
