WELCOME TO SUPERARTS ACADEMY
FOUNDED IN 1962 BY IRENE HAYES BEM
We operate a unique model. We use our members’ fees to fund students and support their families facing financial challenges. We like to refer to this as turning ‘fees into hope and opportunity’. We’re a not-for-dividend company – reinvesting the majority of our profits back into our social mission. With no shareholders to answer to we’re free to dedicate ourselves to the task of promoting the well-being of all children.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO ALL OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
