What is Umoja?

Umoja is the Kiswahili word for unity. It describes our commitment to families, schools and communities working together to foster our students’ personal, social and academic growth.

The seven pillars of the Umoja logo represent the idea that who we are is influenced by the three generations before and that our influence extends to the three generations that come after.

For Umoja, student development is community development. It gives us hope to see a young person gain a vision for his or her life – that not only changes their own future, but the future for all those who come after.
