What We Do

Our Vision
The Nest Academy’s vision is to change the lives of our refugee, immigrant and under privileged students to overcome educational barriers and obstacles in an environment that gives them great hope, love, and acceptance. We instill faith and confidence to achieve excellence in their lives.

Our Mission
The Nest Academy’s mission is to empower, enrich and educate children who were at great risk of slipping through the cracks of our public school system educationally, socially and emotionally, propelling them forward to academic success through an individualized, strategic education plan that is designed for their learning styles.

Our History
Founded from the vision to fulfill its mission in 2009, The Nest Academy began making a difference in the lives of 5 refugee girls, alleviating the barriers, obstacles and pressures of public school, and whose circumstances had stunted their academic success and were falling behind due to unmet individual needs. The academy grew from 5 girls in 2009 to 10 girls in 2011, and to 20 girls in 2012, and the addition of 5 boys in 2013. In 2019, we had 17 students and 1 graduate who received her diploma this May 31, 2019.
