About Scholars Pointe Academy
Scholars Pointe Academy, Inc. (the “Academy”) is the amended name of the former Wonderful Angels’ Academy, Inc. (“WAA”). WAA was founded on April 7, 2001, and formally organized and incorporated on February 25, 2002. The name was amended on October 21, 2013. WAA received confirmation of its non-profit status under Section 501(c)(3) from the Internal Revenue Service on September 28, 2006. The genesis of the decision to found and develop the school system took place on April 7, 2001. The founder and the founding administrators of the school system have engaged in intensive planning and organizational activities, including all required filings with the Internal Revenue Service and various departments of the Maryland State Government.
Research shows that there are 1.35 million abandoned children, and another 600 thousand children in foster care in the United States today, growing at a rate of 6.5% per year. Socio-economic barriers limit access to good education and family life for these "forgotten" children in our society so that most of them are often condemned to mediocre or poor lives. The purpose of the Academy is to provide a temporal home, as well as an elite educational institution, for orphaned and disadvantaged children.
The hallmark of this concept is to have on-campus residences with a “home type” family atmosphere with eminently qualified house parents. The education component would be modeled after that which is provided at the most prestigious private schools.
As Jane Addams correctly observed in her treatise Twenty Years at Hull House, “The common stock of intellectual enjoyment should not be difficult of access because of the economic position of him who would approach it.”
