Supporting the Operation of Imani Christian Academy:
Imani Christian Academy believes that all children deserve highly holistic care. The pre-K through 12th-grade private school serves approximately 250 mostly African-American children from city neighborhoods who face the many challenges associated with poverty and lack of opportunity. Nonetheless, 100 percent of students graduate, and SAT and other standardized test scores are on the rise.
In 2010, Imani reshaped its board and purchased a building from the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Two years later, the school implemented a new operating model focused on academic excellence, student outcomes, professional development, and operational transparency.
In 2016, a $500,000 Foundation grant supported Imani’s operations, as it continues its fundraising efforts among individuals, corporations, and other foundations.
