I'm very lucky to work for two incredible schools educating kids in New York City. On November 29th, join me for #GivingTuesday as we work to accomplish something incredible: raise $15,000 to support arts programming at Storefront Academy Harlem.
Storefront Academy Harlem is committed to teaching the whole child, including rigorous academics, but also enrichment programming that builds confidence and helps to strengthen academic skills.
Every one of our nearly 200 students receives weekly music and dance lessons from full-time faculty – a focus on arts that is very hard to find duplicated in other schools. The arts change lives and offer a glimpse into a different world -- and these experiences help all our 8th grade graduates get into high-performing high schools, and propel them to graduate from high school at remarkable rates.
It costs $950 per student to provide the music and arts programs we do, and it’s only possible because of support from individuals like you. As a tuition-free private school, all of our students are on full scholarship and we raise almost all of our income from individuals and private foundations.
