Mission Statement


Our mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty by preparing low-income youth for higher education. The Neighborhood Academy (The Academy) exists to provide a holistic college-prep education for students in grades 8-12 who come from low income families. The Academy is dedicated to developing the minds, bodies and spirits of our student so that they might become fully productive members of our society. By so doing our students will break the cycle of generational poverty that has held them captive and deprived society of the full value of their lives.

Description


Our curriculum and program intentionally focuses on providing a college-preparatory education to low-income students. Our unique approach includes an extended school day (8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.), very small classes, close and ongoing communication with families and a college preparatory curriculum that culminates in senior seminars in the humanities and sciences. At The Neighborhood Academy, we afford to low income students a private school, college preparatory education that they would not otherwise be able to obtain. To help our students to succeed academically, we also provide counseling, transportation, three meals a day and assistance with emergency needs like medical care. The breadth of our services to students is based on the belief that low-income students face unique challenges and need much more than "school" to learn.
