Esperanza Programs

The primary focus of Esperanza is our student’s academic success by providing a structure of student reflection, goal setting, and support. When a student joins Esperanza, they complete an Individual Service Strategy (ISS), in which their current school performance and career goals are analyzed and an action plan is established to help guide their path toward promotion and graduation. These strategies may include tutoring, mentoring, Saturday Academy college visits, the Ohio Graduation Test club, and daily afterschool leadership classes. Throughout the year, this ISS is reviewed and altered to accommodate the student’s changing academic profile and career development.
