There have been numerous protests targeting racism and police brutality in America. It is essential that we identify and combat all forms of racial inequities such as educational inequality for Black children, specifically from low-income communities. The Washington Jesuit Academy provides high-quality, comprehensive education to boys from low-income communities in the DC metropolitan area. Each student receives a full scholarship that supports a 12-hour school day, multiple uniforms, books and other supplies, three meals a day, competitive high school placements, post-grad mentorship, and much more! The cost of attendance is around $18,000. The generosity of WJA’s benefactors and donors sustain the comprehensive programs, energize the qualified teachers, and empower each student to attend WJA on a full scholarship.
WJA is a solution as they directly combat systematic oppression in the educational system towards disenfranchised young men in Washington, D.C.
