The Maya Way

The Maya Way is a comprehensive approach to education that focuses on academic achievement, social and emotional support, and career and college preparation so students are ready for life after Maya.We also offer a robust alumni program to continue to support our scholars after they have graduated from a Maya Angelou School.

The Maya Way is a belief in the potential of every young person to achieve. It has been said that the students that others run from, we run towards: the majority of the students we serve have repeated a grade, have a history of chronic truancy or suspension, and have been incarcerated or are in the foster care system. Nearly 30% of our students have special needs. This is twice the average for public schools in the city.

The Maya Way is a commitment to parents that we will never give up on their child.

The Maya Way empowers students to transform their lives so they can See Forever!
