The Neighborhood Academy Legacy Society 

Contribute to our Students’ Successful Future!


Founded in 2001, The Neighborhood Academy is a faith-based, college preparatory independent school whose mission is to break the generational cycle of poverty by preparing low-income youth for college and citizenship.  From its humble beginnings in a renovated warehouse on Penn Avenue, to its seven-acre campus built in 2011, TNA is immersing students in a year-round, rigorous, yet caring environment with high expectations that lead to college-bound students leading successful lives.  

Throughout TNA’s history, numerous acts of individual generosity laid the groundwork for today’s achievements. The support of dedicated donors who plan for TNA through their estates ensures tomorrow’s continued success.  

There are many ways to extend your support of The Neighborhood Academy to make a lasting impact. If you have included TNA in your will or other estate plans, you are invited to join The Neighborhood Academy Legacy Society.  Let us know of your charitable plans so we may thank you and welcome you to this group.
