Program Overview

What Do We Do? Backfield in Motion focuses on fostering team work and building academic and social foundations. Students are challenged with more rigorous instructional methods and higher academic expectations. As students progress from the elementary and middle school setting, they will be encouraged to engage in varsity level sports and be exposed to a college/career readiness curriculum, which includes college visits, admissions counseling, internships, and job training. In addition, we have adult basic education classes for parent and families to earn a high school equivalency diploma.
