Who We Are:

The Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists (BSSWA) was founded in September 2004 in the Hunts Point-Longwood section of the South Bronx by a fierce collective of teachers, families, and partners. Under no circumstances shall we accept a student’s past academic history, emotional challenges, or socio-economic status as an excuse not to meet our collective mission to cultivate generations of community-based, college bound, scholar-activists committed to leading wide-awake, literacy-rich lives and improving the quality of the world around them.
