WHO WE ARE

Sankofa is an Akan word meaning, “We must go back and learn our past in order to understand who we are today, thereby empowering ourselves to move forward,” or “We must go back in order to come through.” This Sankofan concept is our school mantra. Our students must be able to go back and analyze the factors, both external and internal, that caused them to make poor or uninformed choices.

WHO WE SERVE

We work with Transfer High School students through their journey and provide them with the support and avenues to move forward. Staff, students, and their families create a climate in which students can cultivate the skills needed to evaluate their options so they can make informed, appropriate choices.

OUR FRAMEWORK

Our teaching and counseling staff provide academically challenging and socially supportive educational environments. These nurturing surroundings engage and enable students to succeed. Our charge is not to educate and exile, but to educate and liberate. Our mission is to develop the whole student—academically, socially, and emotionally.

 

BUILDING A NEW GENERATION OF DREAMERS AND DOERS

 

“This is a home. If your home hasn’t been the way you want it, this is going to be the home that you wanted. But it’s not easy. Days are going to be tough. We have believe that tomorrow you’re going to be better.”
