Program Description

The Maya Way is a comprehensive approach to education that focuses on academic achievement, social and emotional support, career and college preparation so students are ready for life after Maya, and finally, 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, have been incarcerated or are in the foster care system.
