Urban Promise Academy
- Founded in 1997, UrbanPromise Academy offers Camden teens a unique private Christian schooling opportunity.
- Students often enter the school 2 to 3 grade levels below national age level standards.
- The UrbanPromise Academy is a private high school focusing on the needs of young people who are not reaching their academic potential in traditional public education settings.
- Through low student/teacher ratios, a family style learning environment, personal accountability, an emphasis on community service, mentoring and weekly Bible classes, the Academy has seen tremendous success in preparing teens for post-secondary educational opportunities.
- Presently the school boasts of a 95% graduation rate with 90% of the graduates entering colleges and university.
- The mission of UrbanPromise is to equip children and teens with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth and leadership rooted in the principles of Christian faith.
- As a non-denominational organization, the UrbanPromise community seeks to fulfill this mission through after school programs, summer camps, alternative schools, job training initiatives and a host of other programs that challenge youth to develop their academic, social, creative, spiritual and leadership potential.
- Unique to the vision of UrbanPromise is a commitment to involving local teenagers (StreetLeaders) in the tutoring, mentoring, and coaching of younger children in the community.
- By involving teens in the leadership process, UrbanPromise is creating a new generation of young, visionary leaders who embody a commitment to change their own community.
