Every year, as we say goodbye to our graduating eighth-graders and welcome a new class of first-graders, I am struck by the common thread that binds them: opportunity. I feel so proud when I think of a student like Tara Eagan from our first graduating class. I think of the way she grew as a scholar, contributed to our school community, and graduated prepared to succeed at a top secondary school and beyond. She went on to thrive at Grace Church and is now showing thoughtful leadership as a junior at the University of Rochester, serving as president of one of the college’s advisory boards, volunteering in the community, and even coming back as a regular volunteer here at Harlem Academy. (Read Tara’s full story on page 6.)

Harlem Academy drives equity of opportunity, guiding promising students to thrive at the highest academic levels and one day make a mark on the world. Tara’s journey illustrates the power of our transformational mission. It goes beyond a single graduate: 88% of her fellow alumni from our first three classes are now making a difference at colleges and universities around the country. Every member of the most recent graduating class matriculated to a competitive, college-prep secondary school. Our current eighth-graders are models for their peers in the way they approach learning and live our school creed. And when I see the joyful enthusiasm of our newest first-graders, I have no doubt that they, too, will shape their own incredible journeys. None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors and the dedication of everyone in the Harlem Academy family. Thank you for ensuring that Harlem Academy students have the opportunity they need today to become the leaders we all need for tomorrow. Sincerely,

Vincent A. Dotoli




Harlem Academy fills a critical gap in the education landscape for promising, low-income children. Public and charter schools focus on raising low performers to proficiency, while selective programs are inaccessible to children from underserved communities who lack the resources to compete for admission. Harlem Academy serves promising students whose potential might otherwise have gone unrealized. We set tuition on a sliding scale, and no qualified family is turned away for an inability to pay.

We are reversing the downward trajectory that often defines the opportunities available to low-income children. Students enter Harlem Academy with median scores in the 74th percentile and earn 16 points of growth by the time they reach eighth grade. Nationally, a promising, low-income student starting first grade at the 72nd percentile (a similar profile to our students) will lose 13 points by eighth grade, dropping to the 59th percentile.

SCHOOL CREED I am bold and creative. I take opportunities to lead. I seek help when I need it. I am honest and reflective. I choose to do what is right Even when it is hard or no one is watching. I listen carefully. I speak kindly. I care for my community. I make the most of each day. I learn from my mistakes. I don’t give up.
