CamdenForward School

CamdenForward School is a private, Christian elementary and middle school for kindergarten through eighth grade students. With a learning environment rich in love, hope, and structure, the school challenges students to attain high academic standards, learn necessary life skills, maintain personal integrity, and develop a Christian worldview.

In 1997 CamdenForward School opened with only two grade levels: pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. UrbanPromise established an additional grade each year thereafter until all elementary and middle school (K-8) classes were available. The school serves 110+ students from the Camden area. Music, dance, visual arts, and unique extracurricular learning opportunities (such as Urban BoatWorks and SeaQuest) supplement CamdenForward School’s comprehensive academic curriculum.

Despite living in a city with low rates of academic achievement, CamdenForward School students are eager to learn. The school consistently sees attendance rates of more than 90-95%.

Each year around 110 students enroll at CamdenForward School. Many are still in need of support for their tuition through our Partner Program.

Each year, approximately 15% of students at the Camden Forward School are children of UrbanPromise alumni.
