Who We Are

Scholars Academies is a branch of the East Harlem Tutorial Program. East Harlem Tutorial Program began in 1958 as a children's reading group and has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for public school students and a charter school operator focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem. Between its after-school programs and charter schools, more than 15,000 East Harlem youth and their families have walked through its doors – and, by participating in EHTP's year-long, free programs, they have improved their academic skills, developed confidence, and found community.

What Sets Us Apart

EHTP aims to serve as an agent of change and thoughtfully contribute to the national fight for racial equity. Through our organization-wide commitment to anti-racism work, we prepare our scholars to effect change, challenge the status quo, and thrive in the world around them. Furthermore, as staff members we face our own racial identities and conscious and unconscious biases. With this in mind, all of our professional development, curriculum, organizational materials and processes are designed with a goal of racial justice.
