A Message From Alisha Jackson
I see Pride Academy children as astronauts, doctors, lawyers, nurses, actors, artists, and musicians. It is my dream that all Pride Academy Kids will grow up to become productive members of society, living their lives to the fullest!
I assumed the leadership of Pride Academy in 2000 because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of our community members at grassroots level and growing up healthy, happy children is my calling. Today, Pride Academy serves 500 children in several Indianapolis communities.
I want Pride Academy children to experience a vast array of challenging, fun activities that move the left side AND the right side of their brains. We accomplish this by providing age appropriate educational experiences for every child. We engage all of our preschoolers in an early education program designed with the help of four local school districts. It is my promise that 100% of Pride Academy kids are READY to start school. We continue to work with all school districts our Pride Academy kids attend, ensuring that the kids not only finish their homework but receive extra help with any subject they are needing assistance.
Beyond traditional educational activities, we offer extra-curriculum activities including music lessons, reading programs, art activities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineer and Math) activities, educational computer activities, swimming lessons in the summer, African Dance, Karate, Boys Scouts, planting gardens and much more. You child will be inspired every day.
I thank you for entrusting your precious child to Pride Academy. Please know that it is my promise to you that your children will learn determination, perseverance and the love of learning while in my care.
