Mission & Overview
Broome Street Academy Charter High School will empower our students to reach their highest aspirations for post-secondary success. Our equitable, holistic and student-centered approach will provide students with access to a rigorous, standards-based curriculum that will equip our graduates with the skills they need to make a positive impact on their communities and the broader world.
Broome Street Academy is a tuition-free public charter high school devoted to providing students the necessary skills and support to graduate prepared for a successful future beyond high school. Our admissions policy gives preference to siblings and students who are homeless, in foster care, or from low performing schools, though all students are welcome to apply. A Broome Street Academy graduate will possess the 21st-century knowledge, collaborative and technological skills and personal qualities that will enable them to contribute to their community and pursue their educational and professional goals.
At BSA, we hold our students to five pillars of excellence to support students in becoming well-rounded, valuable and value-added citizens. The five pillars of PRIDE include:
Professionalism, Resilience, Investment, Dignity, Empathy
As a public high school that opened in the fall of 2011 in the SoHo area of Manhattan, 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. Our team of excellent educators bring their experiences to Broome Street Academy to support the academic and social achievements of each student.
