About Us:

Photo of Private Elementary School in Harlem, New York CityHarlem Academy’s elementary school program was developed through a grant from the Goldman Sachs Foundation in partnership with Columbia University. This allows access for low and moderate income families based on a sliding scale formula for setting tuition. As the school has grown, major funding has been received from many generous individuals with an interest in supporting transformative educational opportunities. The school’s Board of Trustees and advisory team include eight current or former school heads, as well as leaders from business, education, and the local community.

Our Mission;
We have a straightforward goal for each student: to attain the level of academic achievement and character development required to enter and thrive at top secondary schools. It is toward this goal that we structure programs, develop curricula, hire teachers, and admit students. It is against this goal that we measure the success of our students, our faculty, and the school as a whole.

As an independent school, admission to Harlem Academy is selective. 12% of inquiring families are admitted to the school based on uniform criteria for family partnership, engagement in the learning process, and academic potential. Over 90% of admitted families choose to enroll, and every enrolling family signs a contract stating their financial and personal investment in their child's education. This investment is non-negotiable, but tuition is set to a sliding scale based on household income. No student is ever turned away for financial reasons.

Elementary & Middle School Programs (Grades 1-8):

- Our curriculum covers Literacy, Mathematics, Arts, Sciences, Athletics and Choice.
- During choice (60 minutes most days), students choose from a range of fun and challenging learning activities, including chess, mancala, painting, performance arts, and construction.
- These supplemental learning opportunities build cooperative skills, reasoning, and creativity while promoting a sense of personal empowerment.

Two teachers work with each class of no more than eighteen students to build a values-based school culture with emphasis on courtesy, cooperation, perseverance, and personal responsibility.

The children of Harlem deserve a school that challenges, guides, and supports them to the full realization of their academic potential and sets the foundation for long-term academic and life success. Harlem Academy is that school.
