Richmond-Perrine Optimist Academy

We Are Proud Partners With The State Of Florida and Miami Dade County Public Schools

WeWe opened the Richmond-Perrine Optimist Academy in 1986. Through this program, we provide public school education to Miami-Dade County Public School students, who either have not been able to fit in regular public schools, or who are facing expulsion due to serious violations of School Board Policy, or who have already been expelled from the school system.  Our mission is to help our students to successfully graduate from high school. All students eligible to be enrolled in this program must be located in South Miami-Dade County. The State of Florida and the Miami-Dade County Public School Board funds this program.

Prepared For Life’s Future


Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.
