Our Mission

Intention and Purpose

The mission of Queen Academy is to transform the lives of young women in the foster care and alternative education setting through Christian mentoring and discipleship. 


Anything Is Possible

Our vision is to develop confident, Godly young women who are maximized to reach their

full potential because they are optimized in Christ. 

Our Story

Our Founder: Danielle Washington is an educator with 15 years of experience as a classroom teacher, school principal, and district-level leadership coach and consultant. She has also served as a licensed foster care parent for the last two years in both Georgia and South Carolina. She launched Queen Academy as a mentoring program for middle school girls in 2012 to support at-risk female students with the transition into high school.


When Danielle became born again in 2014, the Lord Jesus Christ placed it on her heart to shift the focus of the program to not only support young women in acquiring the skills needed to transition into high school, but to instruct them in what it meant to have a strong relationship with Him as the foundation of everything in their lives. Since that time, the program has evolved to serve young women at various middle schools and churches, and has expanded to support young women in foster care and alternative school as well.
