Booker T. Washington Academy Opens
For First Day of School
 
New Haven, CT – Booker T. Washington Academy in New Haven officially opened its doors to students today. After a rigorous approval process, the charter school founders received the green light from the state to open, and worked day and night to prepare for the first day of school.
 
Northeast Charter Schools Network Connecticut State Director Jeremiah Grace issued a statement in support of the school:
 
“Board Chair Eldren Morrison and the Booker T. Washington Academy founders have poured their heart and soul into this school. They have overcome obstacles that they never expected, but have emerged victorious – and the students and families of New Haven will be the beneficiaries of their incredible work. Providing a safe and academically challenging learning environment for students will have a lasting impact likely beyond our imagination. We applaud the founders’ dedication to our community’s children, and wholeheartedly look forward to working with the school, the students, and BTWA’s devoted founders for years to come.”
