About East Harlem Tutorial Program

East Harlem Tutorial Program began in 1958 as a children's reading group hosted by a community member in her living room; it has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for students who attend traditional public schools and a public charter school operator focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem. Between our after-school programs and charter schools, more than 15,000 East Harlem youth and their families have walked through our doors – and, by participating in our year-long free programs, they have improved their academic skills, developed confidence, and found community.

EHTP is undergoing a period of rapid growth. We will open East Harlem Scholars Academy High School in 2019 and Scholars Academy II Elementary in 2020, grow our after-school programs, and scale the East Harlem Teaching Residency. EHTP is on track to expand its programs to serve 25% of all East Harlem public school students by 2025.
