About the Host Facility: A Perfect Match
uumba Preparatory School of the Arts (KPSA) is an African-centered private school located in SE Washington D.C. Kuumba offers a year-round non-traditional program in an intimate setting for academics, culture, and the arts. It has been in operation for 37 years in East of the River.
KPSA’s goal is to assist children in developing their character and artistic talent through holistic education. Our objective is to reach the whole child by helping them develop in the areas of theatre, music, dance, poetry, and song. We use the arts to stimulate learning.
KPSA develops the literate person’s self-awareness through historical and cultural linkages that will fulfill their sense of purpose, preparing them for the human stages of life and to successfully play an intricate role in a diverse and socially complex world. We incorporate African-centered concepts into our curriculum of Math, Engineering, Science, Technology, Critical thinking, Geography, Social Studies, Language Arts, and various languages (Twi, Spanish and French). Our intent is “To develop the Artist/Scholar." We service Toddlers, Pre-schoolers, Intermediate and High School students.
