Our Mission

Imhotep is an African Centered, science, mathematics, and technology-learning center whose mission is to provide a standards driven, high quality educational program for urban learners grounded in the Afrikan Principles of Ma’at and the Seven Principles of the Nguzo Saba. Imhotep aims to nurture lifelong learners who are valuable members of the world community. 
High student academic achievement is the primary goal of Imhotep Institute.  Our underlying philosophy is that a rigorous, integrative, constructivist curriculum, combined with the historical and cultural richness of our African heritage, will result in well-rounded and productive citizens.  We believe that an African Centered educational program will provide the environment needed for many of our urban learners.
