Why My Family Celebrates #EHTP60

Both my children attend East Harlem Scholars Academy, an East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) school. Everyone here is focused on my kids having the tools and support they need to achieve their goals. The teachers care about academics, but they also care that my children are excited about learning. And they are always thinking about new ideas that help support my family.

I love that my kids enjoy coming to school. My 7th grade son wants to have perfect attendance. He feels that his teachers encourage him to have a voice and to stand up for what he believes in. Scholars Academy is helping my son understand what it means to be a leader. This generation will be heard!

Scholars Academy inspires our children and gives them what they need to succeed. The classrooms are named after heroes from the community and students believe they can be anything they want to be.

As EHTP celebrates its 60th anniversary, I hope you will consider making a contribution to support our children.

Thank you,
Arlene Goden
