For more than 20 years, Making Waves Education Program (MWEP) has supported students from Richmond, CA in gaining admission to and graduating from college. Building on the extraordinary success of MWEP, Making Waves Academy opened the Middle School (grades 5-8) with a class of 100 5th grade students in 2007. The Middle School now serves 400 students. In September 2011, MWA’s Upper School opened to serve the 8th grade graduates from the Middle School. In 2012-13, the Upper School will serve about two hundred 9th and 10th grade students with between 16-20 faculty.
