Crete Academy delivers an educational program to students Tk-6th

  1. Crete Academy:

Crete Academy was founded by a group of individuals passionate about creating opportunities for children living in poverty. The vision for the school developed from the Founder’s life-changing experience on Skid Row, thirteen years ago. The Founder recalls watching a disconnected mother, watch her daughter crawl through the filthy streets of the city. As she observed the child crawling, she thought, “something has to change for children in these circumstances.” The vision of a school that serves underserved children in impoverished communities emerged from that experience. The Founder, along with many other passionate individuals developed the Crete model.

Crete’s Mission:

Crete Academy delivers an educational program to students TK-6th grade who are homeless and living in poverty. We meet their physical, mental and emotional needs while developing strong character and critical thinking skills so that each child is prepared for college and beyond.
