MOSAIC

 

 

 

 

MOSAIC is an organization for parents of students of African descent interested in continuing Columbus Academy”s diversity efforts and works to foster a more inclusive school community. Our mission is to:

  • Ensure our children are getting the most from their Columbus Academy experience;
  • Be resources for ourselves and our children as well as for parents/families of prospective students;
  • Expand our role in increasing diversity at Columbus Academy through services and outreach, and educational cultural and philanthropic endeavors;
  • Broaden our own awareness of the diverse cultures within society, and specifically, within the Columbus Academy community; and
  • Share our diverse cultures and experiences among ourselves and our children, and with the larger Columbus Academy community.

This is done through services and outreach, and educational cultural and philanthropic endeavors. MOSAIC often hosts discussion forums and activities that promote understanding and community building. MOSAIC is also involved in helping plan school events for MLK Day and Black History Month.


During the 2017/2018 school year, MOSAIC  hosted a successful community event called “Our Hidden Figures Revealed: The Color of STEAM” that culminated Black History Month celebrations at Columbus Academy.  Check back here to learn about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
