Our Mission

The mission of the Urban Peace Academy is to prepare students for success in college, career training and the world; to build a safe supportive community of learners guided by honesty, love justice and a celebration of life; to engage in a process of analyzing, questioning, exploring, and creating our own selves, our cultures and our world. We believe that diversity is crucial to education and must be used as a learning opportunity. By learning from one another we each come to a deeper understanding one another we each come to a deeper understanding of an educational community.
