See Forever Foundation

See Forever Foundation

The See Forever Foundation supports the Maya Angelou Public Charter School, which operates two successful alternative high schools and an alternative middle school in Washington, DC.

The See Forever Foundation (SFF) also operates Maya Angelou Academy (formerly Oak Hill Academy), a school located in Washington's long-term secure facility for youth who have been adjudicated delinquent, as well as a transition center to support students released from Oak Hill return to the community.

SFF/MAPCS integrates all of the support services a traditionally challenged student needs into one seamless, intensive school program. It provides students with small classes, individualized instruction, and a wide range of wrap-around services, including tutoring, mentoring, career preparatory training, internships, enrichment classes, mental health services, residential opportunities, transition support, and “real-world” learning experiences.


EMCF invested $3 million in See Forever Foundation/Maya Angelou Public Charter School from 2004 to 2010. During this period, the organization increased the number of youth it serves six-fold, opened two new campuses and began operations at Oak Hill Academy (now called Maya Angelou Academy).

The organization is recognized as a leader in the charter school movement, working with some of the most troubled, disconnected youth in the Washington, DC area.
