Dream Academy

Dream Academy is a comprehensive, high-quality after-school program that provides opportunities for academic and recreational enrichment, in an environment that stimulates learning and harnesses the power of play. This program has been designed to remove barriers to participation and promote pathways to student success.


Montgomery County Recreation, Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery County Collaboration Council for Children Youth and Families, and Action In Montgomery have partnered to create Dream Academy, as part of the Excel Beyond the Bell (EBB) initiative.


Dream Academy participants power up with a healthy, hot meal before diving into activities that stimulate creativity and grow confidence. Using proven curricula and community organizing, Dream Academy's certified teachers and recreation professionals transform school environments to meet the needs of students and families.


These programs available include:

  • Speak Agent, which "meets the precise vocabulary needs of English and Spanish language learners."
  • Junior Achievement, which "inspires the next generation to transform 'I can't' into 'I can'" and
  • OrganWise Guys, a program to "empower kids to be healthy and smart from the inside out!"
