It Takes a Village Academy's (ITAVA) mission is to help students gain academic skills and knowledge, promote an understanding of and respect for diverse cultures and languages, support active and responsible citizenship, and inspire in our students a lifelong love of learning and pursuit of excellence. Our focus from 9th grade is college and career readiness, which is facilitated by our Early College programs with Berkeley College, Medgar Evers College, LIU, Monroe College and Kingsborough Community College, internships and a robust after school and Saturday Academy geared to building skills of critical thinking and problem solving.
