Salvation Academy is certified to operate by the Ministry of Higher Education – Tertiary Education Commission (MHE-TEC) and The National Council for Technical Vocational and other Academic Awards NCTVA. Also Authorized to operate in the State of Virginia in Alexandria, by the State Council of Higher Education (SCHEV) and Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC)

Founded in 2006 in Alexandria, Virginia USA, and a branch was established in 2012, in Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. Salvation Academy has elevated unemployed community members into the economic mainstream for 16 years through meaningful work experience and post-graduation support. Brima Bob Deen, a Sierra Leonean refugee at the time, created Salvation Academy. Mr. Deen was struck by the bleak prospects facing economically challenged Sierra Leoneans at the time when unemployment was high in the Sierra Leonean community in Fairfax Virginia. An idea for a new social enterprise opportunity emerged to train unemployed Sierra Leoneans in basic Nursing support and Information Technology programs. His goal was to place graduates into the American workforce as employees, independent contractors, and business owners. In 2012, he added the Home Health Care and Private Security training programs and employment services for Unarmed Security Officers and Home Health Care Providers.

This addition and or expansion created more employment opportunities for our graduates by giving them the opportunity to work while attending classes.

Mr. Deen believed this idea would create more opportunities for unemployed Sierra Leoneans and other African residents in Fairfax County while introducing a new stream of diverse African talents to corporate America.

Starting with only 15 participants, Salvation Academy has grown to become a community organization serving nearly 500 participants annually in United States National Capital Region. The participants included: Africans, African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, Europeans, and other nationalities with different backgrounds.

Though our reach has expanded to key areas across the metropolitan areas, we are eager to expand our geographic footprint to serve the needs of more participants, more companies, and more communities across the United States, and Sierra Leone. Working in concert with strong community parnters, we can build tomorrow’s workforce today. Thanks to the generous support of our partners like Northern Virginia Workforce, Ericson Garden – Green Spring facilities, Fairfax county Assisted living facilities, the Veterans Hospital, and Smart Source Group.

A significant investment in our organizational infrastructure in the heart of Fairfax County and Freetown has well-positioned us for growth beyond the metropolitan areas we currently serve. We have plans to expand into other territories beyond the metropolitan areas in the United States and Sierra Leone.

On behalf of our faculty, I take pleasure in welcoming you to Salvation Academy. Our Student Catalog is published so that all students’ partners and supporters of Salvation Academy may have a ready reference to information that is necessary for an understanding of the daily operations of our noble institution. It is essential that all students, partners, and supporters read the information contained in the Catalog so there may be as few misunderstandings as possible. When our Catalog does not give you the information you need, you should contact the School Administration for further assistance. The goal of Salvation Academy can only be accomplished through effective LEADERSHIP with EXCELLENCE, ACCOUNTABILITY, and DIVERSITY, focusing our EXPERTISE, on SIMPLICITY, HEALTH & WELLNESS to enable our IDEOLOGY to cultivate PARTNERSHIPS. Striving to reach this goal must be a cooperative effort on the part of the students, partners, supporters’ faculty, administrators, and the communities. We earnestly solicit your cooperation in this venture and assure you that the result will be well worth the effort. Therefore, I urge students and partners to become actively involved in their areas of interest or programs of study, and the mission, and vision that Salvation Academy offers.

Salvation Academy’s faculty and staff are devoted to helping guide students through their interests, educational needs, or career aspirations. Our administration and student services provide you with essential resources including library, tutoring, resume building, and job placement. We look forward to assisting more students to achieve a higher level of education and better employment opportunities in our communities.

Our pilot program for Sierra Leone is to supply computers to schools, create a local area network for them, and build a solar system for interested schools, especially for schools in remote villages across the country. We currently have three campuses in Sierra Leone (Freetown, Bo City, and Makolo Port-Loko district and we intend have added more campuses in all districts across the country.

Part of our vision is to train, educate and create employment for the youths and young adults to believe they can be very successful in Sierra Leone if they enroll in a program of their choice at Salvation Academy. Our UNESCO – TAP project is to train 400 youths every year for the next 10 years. This is part United Nations' plans for Sierra Leone to be independent by the year 2030.
