Fatimah, Class of 2023
"I too, can make a change and impact in my field, even if I am not well represented in it."
As The Neighborhood Academy (TNA) embarks on our 22nd academic school year, Fatimah is paving the way for girls to follow her to TNA.
Fatimah participated as a 10th grade student in ‘Female Focus’, TNA’s 14-week STEM Program for 9th through 11th grade girls. The program incorporated math, collaborative learning, social etiquette, and skills-building providing exposure to STEM-related fields through hands-on activities, guest speakers, and career exploration. A smart, dedicated, and determined student leader, Fatimah plans to pursue a career in a STEM-related field.
With the support of you, a loyal and faithful supporter, The Neighborhood Academy continues to provide our students a world of creative exploration and academic rigor necessary to thrive in college and beyond. We continue to augment our curriculum to better serve our students, offering for the first time, AP English to our high school students, as well as an innovative STEM-focused curriculum. Our talented faculty welcomed the students with open arms, eager to share knowledge, expertise, and resources that make it possible for them to achieve and excel in Academics, Athletics and the Arts.
With great anticipation and excitement, I am proud to announce The Neighborhood Academy will be opening a Girls Middle School in fall 2023!
Thanks to the success of our Boys Middle School program since its inception in 2017, we recognize the benefits of extending our quality holistic education to Middle School girls. Not only will these girls, grades 6-8, be immersed in critical thinking and hands-on learning, but The Neighborhood Academy will instill new habits of heart and mind, ensuring that all opportunities will be offered to girls such as Fatimah.
I thank you for your continued support, which makes everything we do possible and fosters an environment where all TNA students, grades 6 through 12, feel safe to learn, grow, and become citizens and role models for future generations. In addition to your annual gift, we ask that you consider making a special gift to support the Girls Middle School program.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Anthony P. Williams, Ed.D.
