    Passionate Educator turned School Founder : Aba Healing Academy

    Passionate Educator turned School Founder : Aba Healing Academy

    Aba Healing Academy learned....   For many New Orleans', school- aged children, there is an opportunity to bring in a system that focuses on sound character development, with cultural components that have often been overlooked or underrepresented in traditional education environments. We began planning for a school that would utilize African Traditional Religious concepts, syncretized to widely accepted, Christian beliefs. From our planning, the Aba Healing Academy chose to teach from a Candomble standard of spiritual practice. But why? The answer lies in a better understanding and framing of the question. 

    Candomble focus of cause and effect, effective decision making, and goal orientation provides students and families with a framework for making any choice and decision that gives them both religious underpinning and a scientific approach to the logic there in. 

    Aba Healing Academy is committed to this form of religious practice because we believe that it is THE MOST culturally appropriate form of religiosity.

    Black Minds Matter SXSW EDU Panel: Black Owned: Freeing Black Minds with Education

    Black Minds Matter SXSW EDU Panel: Black Owned: Freeing Black Minds with Education

    At SXSW EDU 2022, Black Minds Matter hosted a panel to celebrate education entrepreneurship! 

    During this panel, we spoke with three Black school founders about their journey to launch schools, the history of Black-owned schools, and how even more people can undertake this venture.  

    Today, only 15 out of 100 Black students nationwide read proficiently, and only 13 out of 100 perform proficiently in math. This is unacceptable, our black minds matter.
