College Park Academy Success Story

The College Park Academy students are doing a lot better than average students at the Prince George’s County Public Schools, according to Pearson Education.

During its first year, College Park Academy’s scores exceeded those of PGCPS on the Maryland School Assessment (MSA). On the reading test, the percentage of 6th- and 7th-grade students scoring proficient or advanced was 95 percent and 93 percent, respectively, compared to 78 percent and 71.5 percent for PGCPS. On the mathematics test, the 6th- and 7th-grade CPA results were 76.3 percent and 79.5 percent, respectively, compared to 56.8 percent and 47.8 percent for PGCPS.

    a better comparison would be to public schools in College Park, not the county, which is large and diverse

    Sam, Thanks for your comments. Just that you know our Public Schools are administered by the County’s board of education and we’ve very limited authority in administering their day to day activity. That said, every year the City does provide quite a bit of financial assistance to the our local elementary, middle and high schools where our city students go. College Park Academy was created to retain city’s families inside the city. Unfortunately, we’ve seen many of our families left the city in the past, because they could not find quality schools in College Park.
