East New York Family Academy

Overview written by the school: Our educational philosophy is based upon the growth of kindness, curiosity, and critical thinking- traits necessary for achievement in higher education, the professional world, and one's personal life. Ninety-minute periods, an average class size of 25 students, and a dedicated group of teachers create a learning experience that motivates and challenges our students. We offer an accelerated Regents program that provides students the opportunity to complete all required Regents exams by the end of their sophomore year. All of our students have the opportunity to complete Advanced Regents Diplomas and take Advance Placement (AP) courses and exams for College Credit which provides strong preparation for success in college and work after graduation.
