About Sankofa Academy

African Centered Education is a system of sequentially planned educational opportunities provided for African heritage children, youth and young adults to develop the necessary and required skills to participate in the global marketplace with specific interest on the upliftment and empowerment of their African-American communities and the total development and growth of the African continent. – Dr. E. Curtis Alexander


Sankofa Academy provides curriculum, professional development, and student services in an effort to transform the educational journey for students of color.  The Afrikan Centered Curriculum Model developed by Sankofa Academy incorporates state mandated objectives with an Afrikan centered perspective.  The model incorporates multisensory activities to meet the needs of all learners. The curriculum design model is divided by grades and each grade given an Afrikan tribe.   Each nine-week quarter students analyze each tribe through culture, art, history, and ancient spiritual practices.  Through our curriculum, students will develop a working knowledge of the tribe through literature, mathematics, and science.
