About Harlem Village Academies
Harlem Village Academies aims for a higher standard. They believe it is essential that students become sophisticated and critical thinkers, coherent writers, confident speakers, and avid readers. They seek to inspire in their students a passion for inquiry, and a genuine love of learning. They believe it is also important for students to master the basics, so they have designed a core set of skills all students must master, exams they must pass, and content they must learn.
Our Vision: Higher Level Learning. Harlem Village Academies aims for a higher standard: students who think critically, argue passionately, and take ownership of their learning. We believe it is essential that students become fiercely independent and sophisticated thinkers, coherent writers, confident speakers, and avid readers. We seek to inspire in our students a passion for inquiry, and a genuine love of learning.
