Background on Hardy and Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia:
Hardy founded the Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Charter School in 2007 with the mission to provide young men of color with an education experience that would prepare them for a future of success and productivity. Ten years later, Hardy has surpassed his vision. Since 2012, Boys’ Latin has had a 99% college acceptance rate and has ensured that hundreds of young men of color have experienced a rigorous, college-prep education along with four years of Latin. Although Hardy recently retired, he’s not done fighting to ensure that underprivileged communities of color have access to a quality education.
