6) I’ve tried contacting the school several times and there’s no answer. Why is that?

We do not have a traditional school office with someone to answer the phone and return calls daily during school hours. While we are excited to have such a groundswell of interest in and support for our schools, the majority of our focus, efforts and resources is placed into executing our academic program for our students. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

7) What is the curriculum?

In an Afrikan centered context, our purpose is building Afrikan children to be exceptional, academically intense, driven and disciplined human beings. Its organic approach concentrates on Reading, Mathematics, Focus, Geography, Health, and Cultural Enrichment. We are a private home school institution with specific measurable goals.

We offer French, Kiswahili, Tai Chi, Piano, Science, Biology, and more in a home school environment.

The vision is to build a grand Afrikan that will display to the world a new type of leader with a global self-determined, politically whole, and holistically substantial stake in his or her own global independence.

We feel that all Afrikan children have growth and development potential that reaches far beyond our limited–and–limiting–perception of society. Considering the constant challenges and views against the progress of building warriors for the future of Afrikan people in this context, we recognize that our program may not be the best fit for every child’s social/behavioral disposition. With this understanding, we respectfully reserve the right to not admit students in the pre-screening of admission. This program is holistic in nature that addresses how the world is viewed. Therefore we teach about international policy and how it places the Afrikan so that our students can be clear on how to move with confidence in this competitive world.
