Camp Cultural Leadership was an influential experience. I learned about social justice issues and how they affected people, African American and Jewish history, and made great new friends.

Camp Cultural Leadership is the 3 week camp version of the high school program, Cultural Leadership. During camp we studied African American and Jewish history, and their relationship.

First Week of School Reflection by Don Danforth

This week, we launched our twentieth school year. It was exciting to see the optimism and excitement of everyone, especially our students. One parent shared that her daughter bounced out of bed, fully dressed and ready to go, having slept in her school uniform!

For me, first days are a time for reflection. I am reminded of how far we have come since opening the school in 1999 at Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club with only 42 students. As we celebrate twenty years of exceptional education, we are excited to open our doors to a record number of students: 202!

2018 Graduation Song by Kenneth Cunningham ’18 (Life Academy ’24)

Good evening my is Kenneth Cunningham and this evening I will be playing one of my favorite, songs Amazing Grace. I selected this song because City Academy has shown grace to me and this evening, as I say goodbye to my City Academy family, I am so thankful for the amazing things I am able to take with me. So I thought it would be appropriate to play this song.
