"Whatever the Mind can Conceive and Believe...can be Achieved."
That's the motto we live by in the University of Maryland Academic Achievement Programs (AAP). Why? Because we've seen the magic of education make it happen so many times before. We take students who would most likely not be admitted into the University if evaluated solely on traditional criteria such as standardized test scores and financial means, and provide them with the life-changing opportunity to earn a degree at the University of Maryland.
AAP looks deeper, identifying potential in young people who otherwise might not get a chance to attend college. Many of our students are first generation college students, come from low-income households, or are traditionally underrepresented students.
Today, however, AAP faces new challenges — challenges that reflect society as a whole. As the gap between the wealthy and the poor continues to grow, the need for our services increases.
