About Us

Our mission is to guide and bring to fruition the full potential of each student we serve. Potentialism is the term we use to describe our overall pedagogical approach and beliefs. The meaning and purpose of Potentialism is rooted in the etymology of the word, potential. The word potential comes from the Latin word, potentialis, meaning 'power' and the process of 'being able'. 

Youth Potential Academy believes that all of the world's children, being our most valuable asset, have inherent power, and that they have the potentiality to be whatever they choose and work towards.

We primarily service youth aged 10-17 from the inner city. We also provide information and training to parents and caregivers.
