The Mott Haven Academy Charter School empowers children in an educational environment which addresses and reduces the barriers to academic success through the integration of family support services with a rigorous, college-preparatory academic program.

Partnership with NY Foundling

In order to meet the needs of our community, the school design includes a close partnership with one of the city’s largest social service agencies, The New York Foundling.

It was then when she knew she wanted to work with young children. Destine studied Early Childhood Education and is currently enrolled in school to continue her education.
