WHO ARE WE?
Prepare for success with an afrocentric curriculum
PEACE Academy is an inclusive community of students, families, educators, and community members who celebrate the rich heritage, people, and cultures of the African-Diaspora and have a holistic understanding of our impact on this world. By conscientiously participating in activities that widen our perspectives and foster positive self-awareness, we are prepared to lead within our communities.
● Our student population is economically and racially diverse, consistently challenged academically, exposed to new critical thinking experiences, and their culture and heritage is celebrated daily through curriculum choices and school experiences.
● Our anti-racist staff members demonstrate excellence in their teaching abilities and a profound love for our students and their identities. Our teachers intentionally employ student-affirming instructional choices and restorative justice approaches to school culture.
● Our families and the community are cornerstones of our foundation and we provide several opportunities for them to get involved, seek development, and partner to make informed decisions around their children’s experiences.

Our Community Values
As a community school, we offer:
The world is a rich and beautiful place filled with diverse and beautiful people, and our students deserve to experience themselves and their heritage as integral parts of this collective beauty. Our daily cultural studies class, rooted in an Afro-centric and Afro-Diasporan curriculum, assists students in developing a full and beautiful picture of themselves through intentional identity affirmation.
Once a month, we facilitate inquiry by providing real world questions to students without giving them the answers. We give them resources to help build their understanding of multiple perspectives toward those questions. We provide students the opportunity to brainstorm new solutions to those problems. Our school schedule builds in time for students to design artifacts that demonstrate their learning and solutions to those real world problems.
Aligned with the “Question of the Month,” the monthly field experiences provide opportunities for students to dive more deeply into real world challenges. PEACE students explore different community organizations and leaders to gain exposure to colleges, careers, and experiences.
Reading is the foundation of success in all subjects. PEACE students receive two blocks of literacy daily as well as two additional opportunities for targeted support during the week.
There are several opportunities for our families to volunteer and learn what their children are studying and receive support in ways they can continue the learning at home.
