IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, JUNE 8, 2020
America is hurting right now. As a country, we are fighting racial injustice, a global pandemic, an economic crisis, record unemployment and political division. Given the extraordinary circumstances we are facing, we are committed to making the Academy accessible for all. We announce today that High School Students may enroll in our College Prep Program at no cost, and a generous scholarship fund is available to allow rising 8th and 9th Grade Students to enroll in our High School Prep Program.
