Our school is named after the Sakkara Complex located in Ancient Kemet.
It was the first institute of higher learning on the continent.
It translates into a place where enlightenment dwells.
In this millennium, the future will belong to those who prepare for it today.
Consequently, it is imperative that we cultivate youth development.
