South Bronx Community Charter High School

As an educational institution located in the South Bronx, we serve multi-racial and multi-lingual scholars. As such, we believe we must consistently and continuously build a liberatory environment that values and engages all scholars, parents, and staff members.  We believe that all scholars should have the freedom to design their own pathways to attain their post-secondary aspirations and become active members of a diverse global community. We believe that all scholars – regardless of race, socio-economic status, place of birth, gender, (dis)ability, or identity – have the right to a supportive and responsive learning environment that promotes holistic excellence as well as social and emotional growth with an emphasis on critical thinking and problem-solving.

South Bronx Community Charter High School promotes student excellence through an emphasis on academic, personal, and professional skills in a supportive and responsive learning environment. SBC students graduate with a positive sense of self, ready to design and realize their futures in college, community, and career.
