 Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a charter school of science and technology that is in accordance with the State Department of Education and the Philadelphia School District’s ongoing effort to reorganize the delivery of educational services. Furthermore, Harambee Institute will work to establish itself as a center for community-based programs. Within this framework, the outcome of Harambee Institute and its community programs will focus on building self-respect, self-reliance, and empowerment through practical, educationally sound and culturally relevant curricula and services. The partners and beneficiaries of Harambee Institute education and related services will be the students, their families, teachers and the West Philadelphia community.
