Times2 Academy is a Charter School for children in grades, kindergarten through twelve in Providence, RI. The school was founded by Ralph Taylor and Mary Sylvia Harrison.
“The Mission of the Times2 Academy for Engineering, Mathematics, Science and Technology is to address the critical state and national need for equitable representation of African-Americans, Hispanics and Native-Americans in careers in mathematics, engineering and science. Times2 Academy endeavors to create a learning environment where all children, but particularly students of color, are exposed to challenging, real-world applications of engineering, mathematics and science to elicit and solidify interests in relevant careers, prepare students for academically rigorous work, and build students’ self-esteem to encourage their belief that they can succeed in these career fields and in life.”
This mission is taken verbatim from the website of the Academy.
