AAFSC is the founding agency and lead community partner of the Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA). KGIA is the first public school in New York City to focus on Arabic language and culture. AAFSC has worked closely with KGIA to empower our interconnected communities, from joint food drives and service projects to providing general wrap-around services, like an onsite afterschool program, to students and their families. AAFSC also advocates on behalf of KGIA at the New York City Council level. As one of three public International Baccalaureate High Schools in Brooklyn, KGIA’s mission is to develop, maintain, and graduate life-long learners who have a deep understanding of different cultural perspectives, a love of learning, and a desire for excellence with integrity. With a diverse student body that has tripled since its establishment in 2011, KGIA is growing as a high-caliber educational institution. In 2016, KGIA graduated its first class of students; we look forward to seeing how they rise as a future generation of global leaders.
