• Our African Centered curriculum supports students of African descent in expanding their knowledge of the culture, history of people of African descent, and increasing their general awareness and knowledge of their own unique history and culture.  

     The African-Centered College Preparatory Academy (ACCPA) at Southeast offers our students all the benefits of the traditional curriculum and is grounded in Ma’at principles of virtue and Nguzo Saba community values.
