The Assata approach implements strategies that empower students through self-esteem, self-reliance and increased knowledge and appreciation for African-American culture and its relevance in today's society. Assata is a holistic, student-centered at-risk program with small class sizes for students who are behind in credits and academic skill levels. We do not have uniforms but our dress code is strictly enforced. Before- and after-school tutoring is available in all subject areas. Assata's educational component is designed to integrate historic contributions and experiences of African-Americans into the daily curriculum as a means to expand both subject and content knowledge needed to overcome credit deficiencies. Parent permission is required for enrollment. For admission, students must qualify as at risk of not graduating and must apply directly at the school or at MPS Central Services.
