The Academy’s mission is to educate young people in a year-round, 210-day educational program. It enrolls children in Kindergarten through the 6th grade and uses a holistic educational program that is personalized, problem-posing and problem-solving, centered in the humanities, natural sciences, language arts, social studies (civics), and African American and world culture studies. This mission is buttressed with electronic technology and emphasizes the establishment of a Learning Community designed to change the traditional educational paradigm and thereby enhance its students’ academic competency and the reuniting of traditional subject areas and learning activities so that students are better able to understand the relationship of one subject area to another and education to their present and future lives. The Academy serves African American, White, Native American, and Latino American students. It is, therefore, open to all elementary school-aged youth residing within the Akron public school district. The Academy also enrolls students who live in the surrounding metropolitan areas such as Barberton, Woodbridge and Kent, through an "Interdistrict Transfer Program."
We have two Learning Centers
