Hope Partnership For Education

Tel: (215)232-5410
Grades: 5 - 8 | 66 students
Hope Partnership For Education responds to the challenge of educating inner-city youth and adults from low-income families in Philadelphia through the provision of a unique, alternative model of education.
Hope Partnership specifically targets students who would benefit from individualized instruction and a supportive learning environment.
Strong academic programs are critical to the success of Hope Partnership for Education.
An important part of our mission is to prepare students for acceptance into the high schools that best match their potential.
Most students enter Hope Partnership several grade levels behind in all subject areas.
In order to provide students with the extra support that they require, Hope operates an extended day/extended year model.
Beyond its academic program, the school offers enrichment activities, one to one tutoring, and community service projects in order to foster the personal and intellectual development of all its students.
