The Downside

Too soon to say

A small school with a big name, The Collegiate Academy for Math and Personal Awareness Charter School (CAMPA) is out to prove that middle school students in East New York can take and excel in high-school level courses.

Opened in 2017 in building owned by Bethlehem Baptist Church, CAMPA offers algebra and biology—classes usually taken in 9th grade—to 6th and 7th graders. Some students pass Regents exams in algebra 1 and Living Environment in 7th grade, Niaka Gaston, CAMPA director of operations, said in an interview posted on YouTube. [photo of students from school website]

Gaston said teachers who get to know students well can help lift the barriers to success. “We know what’s stopping them from being an “A” student,” he said.
