The Neighborhood Academy

The Neighborhood Academy began in 1993 as an innovative summer school program for at-risk youth. In response to the success of the summer school, The Neighborhood Academy opened its doors as a full year day school in  September 2001. It’s mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty by preparing low-income youth for higher education by    providing a holistic college-prep education for students in grades 8-12 who come from low income families. Bower Hill’s Mission Committee and individual congregation  members have provided financial support to TNA. Volunteer opportunities exist for both tutors and those willing to assist with the lunch and dinner programs by emailing them via their web site.
