Capital Campaign

Capital Campaign

In 2014, Harlem Academy purchased a half-acre lot at 655 St. Nicholas Avenue to build a permanent campus in the heart of the communities we serve. Having raised more than 90% of the $31 million project budget, construction has begun on our 29,000 square-foot, five-story schoolhouse.


Our new campus will allow Harlem Academy to nearly double its student population, strengthen its program, and reduce cost per student. It will feature a library to match our extraordinary reading culture, flexible classrooms with strong technology, a multipurpose community space, and a dedicated play yard. Most critically, the campus will ensure a lasting pathway to opportunity for generations of leaders to come.


We need your help to get there. Please join Future Leaders: The Capital Campaign for Harlem Academy at this pivotal time of growth for our school. Your help will ensure a lasting pathway for generations of leaders to come.

INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE

CENTRAL LOCATION

Located in the heart of the communities we serve, the campus is within walking distance of public transportation, City College, historic landmarks, and city parks.




EXPANDED IMPACT

Our new campus will nearly double our impact to 216 students. The addition of a kindergarten will allow for earlier social and academic skill development, while a second section in grades six through eight offers broader academic and social opportunities.

GREATER EFFICIENCY

The new campus will expand the student body while reducing fundraising per student by 40%. We will achieve economies of scale by increasing the number of sections while keeping administrative costs relatively flat.

STRONGER PROGRAM

Students will benefit from enhanced classrooms with effective technology and plenty of natural light. Our multipurpose room will serve as a theater, cafeteria, and indoor athletic space. A private outdoor area will feature room for learning and play.
