The African Dream Academy Inc.
The African Dream Academy Inc. (ADA) is a Liberian, not-for-profit corporation, which opened its doors for the first time on September 10, 2012, welcoming 140 children in Grades Pre-kindergarten through Grade Four. These were children who, otherwise, would never have received an education, since their families could not afford the normal school fees of Liberian public schools. ADA, a tuition-free, co-ed school located on Robertsfield Highway, Monrovia West Africa, was able to open largely due to the support of the African Dream Academy Foundation (ADAF), a New York State registered charity, whose mission is to reduce poverty and foster sustainable development by empowering African children through education. The Foundation continues to seek support for ADA as the Academy continues to expand.
After completing its second academic year in June 2014, ADA had to remain closed for eight months due to the tragic Ebola pandemic, which, until recently, gripped West Africa. Thankfully, after new cases of Ebola were reduced to practically zero, the school was allowed to reopen on March 2, 2015. While Liberia is now struggling to restore its economy and critically needed services, including public education and healthcare, ADA is playing a critical part in this recovery by offering a tuition-free, coed school to the poorest of Liberia’s children, including many who were orphaned by Ebola, and a free health clinic for ADA and local children.
In September 2016 ADA will begin its fourth full academic year with approximately 500 students enrolled in classes from Pre-kindergarten through Grade Eight and a staff of 48 Liberian nationals. The Clinic within walking distance of the school currently treats children from birth to six years of age.

Established in 2011, the African Dream Academy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) corporation that raises tax-deductible donations that the board directs to specific educational funding needs of the African Dream Academy, which will have high impact on the School's ability to empower African children through education.
