Their Mission Statement

Imagine hundreds of school-aged boys within our local community having the opportunity to rise out of poverty, graduate college and become great leaders in society. On September 24, 2012, Visible Men Academy (VMA) became the first all-boys public charter school approved in Manatee County, Florida. VMA will open it's doors in August 2013 expanding the Kindergarten through 8th grade education options available to the families of Manatee County. VMA offers a gender-specific school designed to promote intellectual and academic advancement while simultaneously addressing the local, social and emotional challenges of the environment for low-income boys. The mission of Visible Men Academy is to provide boys from low-income communities with outstanding academic, character, and social education in a nurturing school environment. The purpose is to deliver a high-quality educational experience that meets the specific needs of at-risk elementary and middle school aged boys through the collaborative efforts of administrators, teachers, parents, the broader community, and the students themselves. The VMA vision is to lead boys toward a realization of their innate strong character - boys who are family orientated, community conscious, and globally aware. Through a firm foundation of intellectual and academic diligence, VMA students will be equipped to meet and exceed the expectations of challenging high school environments and will be eager and determined to pursue college.
