Invest in the future of fellow Inwood Academy scholars.

SBA Program

Inwood Academy for Leadership is seeking donors and mentors to help launch the Inwood Student Business Accelerator (SBA) program this year. Students and alumni who participate in the SBA program will gain a unique and valuable knowledge base, extensive professional experience outside our school walls, opportunities that students from economically disadvantaged communities often lack, and will be provided with seed capital to bring their proposed business to life. This new program will further our founding mission of empowering students from upper Manhattan and the Bronx to pursue futures full of opportunity.

Alumni Manager

We have a full time Alumni Manager who helps our graduates navigate college, job and career exploration, and stay connected our network. We have a full-time Transition Counselor to specifically support students who may be struggling in a traditional academic program and find unique pathways to graduation, college and career. Many alumni return to share their experiences and encouragement with younger Inwood Academy high school students by volunteering at events, serving on an Alumni Week panel, or becoming an Alumni Ambassador.
After students graduate from Inwood Academy, a College and Career counselor is dedicated to helping students matriculate and graduate from college. Our Alumni support begins immediately after graduation and includes follow up on the tasks students must complete: enrolling, financial aid verification process, and paying housing deposit. Once our students are attending college, we will continue to keep in touch with them through text communication, email, social media and visit them on campus. Hazel Piña, Alumni Manager, can be reached at or 917-920-0452.
