The Neighborhood Academy 

The Neighborhood Academy, comprised of a middle school and high school, is designed to remove every barrier that prevents young people from thinking about their futures and the steps needed to achieve their goals. Our holistic set of programs ensures that all issues affecting young people are addressed. Students who cross our threshold enter into a tight-knit network of concerned adults who constantly evaluate their progress; in return, they commit to valuing their education, setting new habits of heart and mind, and growing into adults with character who will contribute to their communities.   

We provide the following set of resources to our students and families, all of whom receive a full scholarship: 

  • 100% of our graduating seniors are accepted to college
  • Tuition assistance for all (our families pay $50-450 per month vs. full-tuition of nearly $30,000 per year)
  • Transportation provided by students’ home district
  • Three meals served every day
  • Guidance through the college application and scholarship process
  • 16:1 student/teacher ratio
  • College-prep curriculum
  • Co-curricular after-school arts & athletics
  • Engaging summer programming, which includes classes, engagement with local colleges, and enriching field trips.
  • 30+ college visits by the time a student graduates
  • Alumni support , including staff visits to campus and dedicated internship placement through corporate connections
  • On average, 81% of our alumni graduate college within 5 years
  • Mandatory mental and emotional individual and group counseling
