About Storefront Academy Harlem


Located at 70 East 129th Street in Harlem, Storefront Academy Harlem is a tuition-free private school, educating urban youth of all learning abilities, from prekindergarten to 8th grade.

With one class per grade and no more than 19 students per class, Storefront Academy boasts an optimized student/teacher ratio that enables our faculty to meet the individual needs of each student, supporting all levels of learners with differentiated instruction and supplemental skills-based support.

Storefront Academy pre-kindergarten students are admitted by lottery, with some preference given to students whose siblings attend the school. For the handful of slots in grades kindergarten and above that become available each year, students are admitted without regard to academic background or financial means.
