Founders' Circle


The Founders' Circle acknowledges the philanthropic leadership of individuals and organizations during Harlem Academy's formative years as an organization. Each member has made a lifetime commitment of at least $50,000.

We are honored by the active roles these leaders have taken in helping to guide the school’s vision and growth, and we are grateful for their work to ensure the sustainability and permanence of our institution.
