Habari Gani membersof the Paige Academy community,
 
 
  • In the Spirit of Umoja - Unity. We hope that you are staying strong and healthy during this time of uncertainty and isolation. As a community we continue to support one another and to keep each other in our prayers.
 
  • Paige Academy remains open and has transitioned to Zoom classes until further notice. Paige Academy will transition to in-school learning on July 27.
 
  • Remote Learning - Paige Academy teachers have been working hard to continue to provide learning opportunities for students to engage in at home during this time. Please visit https://paigebrooksc.wixsite.com/mysiteto access the blog and remember to check it throughout the week for updates. Elementary school students can access remote learning through google classroom. 
 
  • Looking Ahead - Paige Academy is committed to continuing our legacy of excellent Early Childhood and Elementary Education. We look forward to re-opening in a safe and culturally resonant environment. 
 
  • Updates - Paige Academy recently acquired 21 new baby chicks. After maturing in a small home in the Umoja Room, they are large enough to move into an outdoor space where they can live and be safe and warm. On Saturday we relocated them to their new home in the chicken coop on the playground at building 26/28. Several parents, staff members and students helped make the relocation possible. We are looking forward to your children returning to help with the venture of feeding and taking care of them. Please call Brother Joe to schedule a time to bring your child by to see the chicks if you desire to. We will take safety precautions.
 
  • Summer Program - We hope that with the support of our community and Imani, Faith, that we will continue operations in the summer and pick up with our Nguzo Saba Summer Program. Please email abcpaigeacademy@gmail.com to inquire about enrolling your children into our summer program.
 
  • Faculty Update - Paige Academy is committed to maintaining faculty and staff to the extent possible because our amazing staff is at the heart of what we've been doing for 50 years. We have committed to continuing to pay faculty and staff and will do so as long as there are available funds. We have applied for the PPP (payroll protection program) Zone from the United States government through Century Bank. If we are successful in securing these funds, we will be able to pay our staff for eight weeks going forward from the date on the award.This pandemic has created a financial burden on the school. The generous support of the greater Paige Academy community has sustained the school's mission over the decades and we will graciously accept any contributions to help us get through this challenging time.
