Fugees Family Inc. is a non-profit organization that operates a year-round, tuition-free private school, Fugees Academy, a middle and high school for refugee students. Founded in 2006, the organization’s flagship Fugees Academy campus is in Clarkston, Georgia. The school is in its eleventh year and is SAIS and SACS accredited. Fugees Academy is the first school in the United States dedicated to refugee education. The core design principles of the school include an extended school day, a low teacher-student-ratio, interactive instruction, a comprehensive tutoring program, a soccer-focused athletic program, and intensive wrap-around support services for students and their families.
Fugees is replicating its strategic vision to new schools in other states, opening its second school in Columbus, Ohio for the 2018 – 2019 school year and a third school in Cleveland, Ohio for the 2019-2020 school year
