These families have limited educational options.
Cambodians have a 70% drop-out rate in Philadelphia and the lowest college rate of any ethnic group in America.
LOGAN Hope also sponsors an after-school program and summer day camp.
Its staff and volunteers advocate for families and partner with others who work in the neighborhood and with Southeast Asians citywide to transform our city and its people.

- Accessibility to those least able to afford it. LOGAN Hope tuition pays for less than 10% of the school's operating budget and there is usually little or no charge to attend the other programs.
- Infusionomics: An economic literacy program where the infusion of economic thinking and concepts into the core academic subjects results in a multi-dimensional understanding of free market economic concepts and sound decision making. At the same time this program also engages students in all core academic subjects due to the relevance of the economic concepts to their everyday lives.
- F&F: A uniquely designed research-based and research-supported instructional reading program. We adopted this curriculum in 2005 and have witnessed tremendous student achievement gains in vocabulary, reading comprehension, total reading, critical thinking, problem solving, and written expression.
- Field trips: LOGAN Hope is able to do experiential education by taking advantage of the many field trip opportunities that exist throughout the Philadelphia area. These out-of-classroom experiences serve to contextualize and concrete concepts learned inside the classroom.
- Real life application & critical thinking emphasis: At LOGAN Hope we concentrate on developing real skills and deep understanding of material instead of the test-taking skills taught at the other neighborhood schools. Because of our emphasis on critical thinking and life application our students consistently out-perform their public school neighbors.
