We prepare students with the academic skills, strength of character, and emotional well-being to excel in high school and college.
The High School Program is a year-round college readiness program for grades 9-12 that focuses on college preparation and admissions. The program starts with early college awareness that culminates in a full range of support for college students to ensure they graduate on time. The High School Program provides classes that boost writing and science skills, SAT test-preparation, assistance with the college application process, financial aid coordination, mentoring, and counseling. After graduation, High School Program participants transition to College Scholars and receive a full range of support to ensure college graduation.
Qualified scholars also have the opportunity to take part in paid internships at EHTP, where they gain valuable work experience by supporting our teaching and administrative staff.
All EHTP programs are tuition free. Preference is given to residents of East Harlem.
High school scholars can choose from a number of electives designed to improve their academic skills, and explore an area of interest or potential career path.
High school scholars can participate in our Media Studies program, where they produce a public access television show for Manhattan Neighborhood Network. These students learn the art of screenwriting, direct and produce films, and interview EHTP students, families, staff, and community members to raise awareness about issues affecting young people in East Harlem.
EHTP’s Media Studies scholars also participate in the Tribeca Teaches program, a partnership with the Tribeca Film Institute that provides scholars with an opportunity to explore film-making. Scholars gain access to production and post-production technology that helps them explore critical connections between personal experiences, school curricula, and the communities in which they live. Each spring, students are invited to screen their films during the Tribeca Film Festival.
