Children First Academy is dedicated to engaging students as critical thinkers, problem solvers and active citizens. We strive to serve the whole child by providing hope, fostering strength and facilitating self-determination.
100 percent of the students and their families are at the poverty line and 40 percent of the students are homeless. There are approximately 300 students, grades K-8, being educated on its grounds. The school provides stability and hope for kids amid a chaotic world of homelessness and hopelessness; many of the children live in motels,shelters and many live doubled up .
Children First Academy works to provide the necessities, care and attention that so many homeless and low socioeconomic children lack.
