Academic Success is a top priority here at Madison, so when we can combine a love of learning with some star-studded fun, everybody wins! Together in partnership with Learn Fresh, our members had the opportunity to take part in an NBA Math Hoops championship at our Navy Yard Clubhouse, which furthered Madison’s commitment to ensure an early love of learning.
Brooklyn Nets player Darius Morris cheered our members on as they took part in a friendly competition while playing the basketball board game, allowing our members to learn fundamental math skills all while having a great time! Players drafted a team of NBA and WNBA players, then used statistics and solved math problems to advance.
Every day, Madison provides homework help and academic enrichment, mentors young people who are at risk for dropping out of school, offers resources so members can build their computer and technology skills, and guides members to explore potential careers and navigate the college application process. Learning is fun here at Madison!
