Our Story


EHTP aims to serve as an agent of change and thoughtfully contribute to the national fight for racial equity.

East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) 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 network of charter schools focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem.


Our Mission

East Harlem Tutorial Program offers students an anti-racist and equitable learning collective to exercise their brilliance. Our scholars build the academic skills, strength of character, and emotional well-being to thrive in school and lead in their communities. To read EHTP’s racial equity statement, please click here.


Our Hope

Students shouldn’t have to leave their neighborhood to access a great education. East Harlem is a vibrant community that has experienced extreme educational inequities resulting from systemic oppression and historical marginalization — which, in turn, affects college completion and unemployment rates.

We work in partnership with students and their families as they harness the limitless potential of East Harlem.


Our Future

Campaign for East Harlem, Phase II: We are constructing a state-of-the-art high school that will become home to hundreds of students! The 70,000-square-foot building will include a full-size gym and auditorium, STEM labs, art and music rooms, and an event space open to the community.

Seize the moment with us! You can broaden educational opportunities for our scholars, and have a lasting impact in East Harlem for years to come.
