Points of Pride

  1. We encourage the Scholars by being the best by promoting and teaching about African Culture Consciousness as well as Self-Identity.
  2. We use and urge all Scholars and Professors to live by the Nguzo Saba and the Code of Ma’at, which focuses on oneself in becoming a better citizen.
  3. As a whole, the Professors here are family and believe that “it takes a village to raise a child,” so curriculum is put in place so that our Scholars learn about now, and also to remember their history and where they came from.
