The Haitian Academy, founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1979 as a certified not-for-profit, independent Institution of Education.
The Haitian Academy is dedicated to offer to its student’s sound academic knowledge and character education from an early age, in a structured, loving environment. We cultivate a moral setting, to prepare well educated, positive minded young leaders; with a sense of purpose in life. The commitment of The Haitian Academy is to groom the new generations to be qualified, loving and caring professionals in the career of their choice.
To reach the highest level of instruction, we seek qualified, internationally educated Teachers and Professors. We make sure that they are supportive of the Haitian Academy’s Philosophy, using state-of-the-art innovative approaches as teaching resources, to stimulate the student’s minds, and awaken their curiosity towards research and creative learning.
The Haitian Academy achieves its goal by creating a unique, multicultural, multilingual setting for global education. Each student is unique and is a very important member of their society and the world. Each student is entitled to receive adequate instruction, in order to maximize his/her performance in life. The Haitian Academy supports the development of all students, at all levels, through the implementation of the arts, music, and sports in our curriculum. The integration of these activities in the lives of the children and youth will create an inner equilibrium, and a balanced personality for their success, thus a better life for those living in their surroundings. The Haitian Academy rejects all forms of violence and discrimination, in every aspect of life, and everywhere on planet Earth.
At The Haitian Academy, we define Education in the 21st Century as “The art of using all information accumulated throughout the world intelligently, for a more UNIFIED, SENSITIVE, HUMANE WORLD, with the ultimate goal of Elevating our minds and souls, in order to improve our way of living on earth”.
