Pelham Academy is a Middle School in the Bronx. We first opened our doors in 2009 and have had a successful couple of years. We have made good gains year after year and plan to continue to do so.
The Pelham Academy for Academics and Community Engagement aims to provide its
students with the resources and supports they’ll need to gain admission into and be
competitive at college prep high schools. By providing access to the tools and the
coaching so they learn how to use those tools effectively, graduates of Pelham
Academy will be prepared to begin meeting the academic, social and emotional
challenges they will face on their way to college. By partnering with staff, students,
families and the community, we ensure that our approach is authentic and the identity of
our students, their families and the community is reflected in our work.
At our core is a rigorous academic curriculum that is supported by highly qualified
teachers and high expectations of all students. Literacy will be integrated throughout
the curriculum as students will have the opportunity to read and write, every day and in
every class. Students are encouraged to participate in additional academic support
opportunities during lunch, after school and on weekends. Students will have the
chance to work independently and in collaboration with their peers on an ongoing basis.
