In 2004, the See Forever Foundation dedicated its second campus, the MAPCS-Evans High School Campus. The campus is located east of the Anacostia River in Ward 7 of Washington, D.C. Our school’s core expertise is integrating all of the support services that at-risk students need to become self-sustaining adults into a comprehensive school program that emphasizes college and career readiness programming. With over 15 years of experience working in urban education and serving at-risk youth, we know the power that a comprehensive program can have on lives of young people needing a second chance to succeed.

At Maya Angelou PCS, students learn from a relevant and rigorous academic curriculum and receive wraparound supports including:

  • Mental health counseling and support,
  • After-school tutoring and enrichment programming,
  • College and career transition planning,
  • Paid employment training opportunities
  • Residential program for a select amount of students

As a result of this program design, students with significant educational and emotional needs improve their grades, graduate from high school, and attend college or specialized career training programs.
