The DC Chapter of the Regional Alliance of Students and Professionals has united forces with the Isle of Patmos Baptist Church to create the ACADEMIC NIGHT.
We believe that this collaboration between organizations builds a strong sense of community and brotherhood. We value your involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with us that this might become the most powerful and joyous learning experience possible.
The Academic Night program is designed for adults who need to improve their skills to enter or improve their lifestyle. We also have a tutoring program for children who might need reinforcement after school.
The goal of the academic night is to provide high quality adult basic education in a manner that changes lives and improves our community.
