LEARN ABOUT THE ACADEMY

Built on a seven-acre campus in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, the Academy is the largest secondary school of its kind in Haiti. Born out of the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, it has grown annually and is now at full enrollment offering a secondary education to more than 3,500 students. The Academy is unique in seeking out some of the city’s most struggling and deserving youth, providing them with a middle and high school education. This truly is exceptional since most children in Haiti do not attend school past the 5th grade.

LEARN ABOUT THE ARTIST INSTITUTE

The Institute provides professional training and technical resources to power a youth-led creative economy of local film and music production. Located in Jacmel, on the southern coast of Haiti, the beautiful five-acre campus features recording studios, video editing suites, production offices and classrooms. It is an oasis for creatives to learn, teach, collaborate, envision and produce.

The Institute is co-recipient of a 2014 Emmy Award and frequent host to internationally acclaimed artists. Many graduates earn twenty times the national average annual household income.
