To help the children who come to Today’s Harbor for Children, Boys and Girl’s Harbor, thrive in their new community, Today’s Harbor for Children entered a partnership with an established charter school to operate The Harbor Academy. The Harbor Academy is an “open enrollment” charter school for children in kindergarten through eighth grade.
This on-campus partnership allows children to learn in the environment that they are also learning to call home. For children just barely on the other side of crisis, an education environment that provides stability and comfort and is steps away from the support of their house parents is instrumental in ensuring they are able to be successful in school. Our charter school is a place where focusing on their education is no longer a struggle and can serve as a cornerstone for our children’s transformative journey.
Because each child’s journey is unique, we’ve built a community, with an educational program that is just for them. Education at The Harbor Academy is focused on each individual student, with smaller teacher-student ratios that allow for the attention that each child needs. We strive hard to ensure their needs are met outside the classroom, so they can focus in the classroom.
