My Library Needs Your Help
A personal request from Lisa Egly Lehmuller
Paul Cuffee Maritime Charter School, Providence RI
Born in 1759, Paul Cuffee was an African American/Native American and a ship builder, merchant and sea captain. When he could find no school that would accept his children because of their race, he built his own school for people of all races to learn together.
In the spirit of Paul Cuffee’s life, we teach students to value and practice personal initiative, perseverance and social responsibility. Our school accomplishes these goals through a rigorous academic program and enrichment activities which foster discovery and critical thinking--we teach the whole child--mind, body, spirit.
