Mission & Overview
Broome Street Academy prepares all of its students to graduate with Regents diplomas through a rigorous curriculum that is grounded in the principles of positive youth development. We believe that all students, when adequately supported, can achieve anything.
Broome Street Academy is a tuition-free public charter high school devoted to providing students the necessary skills and support to graduate with a Regents diploma, while preparing them for a successful future beyond high school. Our admissions policy gives preference to students who are homeless, in foster care, or from low performing schools.
As a public high school that opened in the fall of 2011 in the SoHo area of Manhattan, we make use of the various cultural and social resources surrounding our school. Our educators bring their experiences to Broome Street Academy to support the academic and social achievements of each student.
Broome Street Academy is uniquely able to provide non-academic services through a close partnership with The Door, New York City’s premiere youth development organization, providing an exceptional model that seamlessly integrates rigorous academics and youth development services all under one roof.
