For more than 30 years, Black, Brown, and Biracial students have participated in The Academy for Scholastic and Personal Success summer program, which teaches the core curriculum from a cultural perspective. The Academy SPS encourages students to take responsibility for their academic progress, uses cultural information to teach them why it is important, and shows them how to do it.
The Academy Expansion program offers weekly lessons to third, fourth, and fifth graders, teaching them self-confidence and classroom skills necessary to establish academic success.
The AAAP (African American
Awareness Program) mirrors the Expansion program and prepares middle
school students for The Academy SPS. In AAAP middle schoolers continue
to learn the importance of self-regard and academic excellence.
