What a truly extraordinary day!
Following years of dedication to our campus vision and 18 months of seeing the construction only through photos, our students were thrilled to walk through the doors and experience their new school.
They took in the commons with wide-eyed wonder, eagerly climbed the stairs to large, sunny classrooms, spent time reading in the inviting library, enjoyed a healthy lunch with classmates in the café, and much more. It was wonderful to see (and hear) so much enthusiasm, joy, and intellectual engagement!
There were many moments of pride today as our teachers and students jumped right into the program after excitedly touring the space. A feeling of celebration was in the air and for good reason: Harlem Academy’s new permanent campus now matches our students’ love of learning, our teachers’ commitment, and our families’ dedication – today and for generations of students to come.
I am forever grateful for your partnership in this journey.
Head of School
