School Choice


Often the schools in the inner-city are overcrowded and don’t answer the needs of each student. Our schools are intimate, family-oriented, and children are comfortable there. We have a very low tuition for an independent school, but many students are from low-income families and need a Parents Empowerment Scholarship to attend or New York City Department of Education Funds to send Students with Disabilities (SWD) to private schools. 


What is school choice?

How can it empower parents and

help kids achieve their dreams?

What is school choice? School choice is the process of allowing every family to choose the K-12 educational options that best fit their children. Every child is unique, and all children learn differently. Some children might succeed at the neighborhood public school, while others might fit in better at a charter, magnet, online, private or home learning environment. That’s why school choice is so important!

Every child deserves an effective, challenging, and motivating education. And, because each student has their own unique set of talents, interests, and challenges, having a variety of options in education is crucial. What works well for one child may not work well for another child! In short, school choice ensures that each student can find a learning environment that allows them to be inspired, successful, and happy.

The Value of Certification


Skills have become the global currency of the            21st century economies!


In a world where competition for jobs, pay increases, and academic success continues to increase, certifications offer hope because they are a credible, third-party assessment of one’s skill and knowledge for a given subject.

Certification can improve academic performance

•    Higher grade point average for certified high school students: 3.12 vs 2.78 (4.0 scale)

•    Higher graduation rates for certified high school students: 97.5% vs 78.4%

•    Increased post-secondary enrollment: 84% vs 82%

•    Reduced dropout rates: 0.2% vs 1.0%
