Graduation Day at Mott Haven Academy Charter School


Last Monday, 40 kindergartners, most of whom are in the child welfare system, graduated from their class at the Mott Haven Academy Charter School, a charter school sponsored by The New York Foundling, a non-profit agency.

According to a press release, the school's model is unusual in that it "integrates the rigorous academic curriculum of a charter school with the supportive social services that many of these children and families rely on to remain intact."
