Our mission at The Canvas Academy Proposed Bronx Charter School is to create an environment where scholars who are teen parents, in foster care, have been homeless, are SIFE students, or have circumstances which have led them to become over-aged and under credited are held to their highest possibilities, earn a Regents diploma, and enter college, earn a vocational certification, or start a business to contribute to their community upon graduation.

Key Design Elements:

Life Advisors:Staff and faculty will be matched up with scholars based on their life needs.

The Language Academy: Spanish and Albanian language classes will be held for staff and faculty to support scholars and their families to promote a culturally aware school community.

Community Service and Internship: Scholars will complete at least 20 hours of community service per school year and a total of 220 hours of career development and internship hours.

Leadership Academy: Through our partnership with Momentum Teens for Leadership, Inc, our scholars will enter a leadership program that will not only support them to understand that they matter and that everyone can be a leader, but it will give them the skills needed to become a leader through a mentorship program based on setting and reaching life goals.

Arts & Technology Infusion: All teachers will receive professional development to include the arts and technology into their curriculum. Scholars will also have the opportunity to explore careers in the arts and technology through career development.

Entrepreneurship Program: Scholars that are interesting in creating their own businesses will get support from community entrepreneurs and other non-profit organizations to learn how to achieve their dreams while creating jobs for their community and income for their families.
