About Us

The term “Sankofa” means that it is ok to go back to the past to learn lessons that will positively impact your future. Loosely translated, Sankofa means “to go back and get it”. The power of Sankofa centers around this: to know your history and your heritage is to know your current self, the world around you, and how to better both.

At the Sankofa Academy we believe in second chances. Our school was created to assist people that have already graduated high school, but without the required BGCSE subject passes to enter a degree program. Our goal is to assist persons with obtaining the necessary BGCSE passes for entry into a tertiary level institution such as 4-year college or university in the Bahamas.

The Sankofa Academy (TSA) is firmly rooted in the African philosophy of Ubuntu. Ubuntu has its roots in humanist African philosophy, where the idea of community is one of the building blocks of society. Ubuntu is that concept of common humanity and oneness: you and me.

Words from our President

We started TSA because we believe that everyone deserves an equal chance to succeed. Economic disadvantages should not be a barrier to achieving one’s college education. By providing resources and support to those in need, we can help bridge the gap and empower individuals to achieve their goal of obtaining a college degree.
