KUUMBA ACADEMY: THE PLACE TO BE
Kuumba Academy students’ futures are on a different path. They are compassionate, confident, persistent and proud of whom they are. They are leaders and artists, excited to take on challenges, “different.” They know that academic success is essential, and that school prepares them for success in life.
Learning in an urban setting within Wilmington’s Creative District exposes Kuumba Academy students to a diverse world, with the opportunity to engage in rigorous learning inside the classroom and community. Through fieldwork and community partnerships with accomplished artists and business leaders, Kuumba Academy students are broadening their horizons. A focus on heritage and self-expression helps students build pride from the inside out.
