Thurgood Marshall Academy

School Bio:

The mission of Thurgood Marshall Academy (TMA) is to provide students and their families with the experiences they need to meet the challenges of the colleges, universities and the work force in the twenty-first century. Furthermore, we prepare them to meet the challenges of participating in a culturally diverse society. We strongly believe that educating the students of Thurgood Marshall Academy is the resonsibility of our entire community, as reflected in the African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child.” Therefore, the school program incorporates parental involvement as well as collaborative efforts with institutions, organizations, and resources in Central Harlem.
