|Founding Principal, East Harlem Scholars Academy High School|
|East Harlem Tutorial Program|
East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) 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 organization, serving more than 1,500 students and families a year through after-school and summer programs, college support programs, and a growing network of charter schools, East Harlem Scholars Academies. Focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem and grounded in the 60-year legacy of EHTP, East Harlem Scholars Academies are public charter schools that prepare students with academic skills, strength of character, and social and emotional well-being to excel in high school and college, to lead in their communities, and to realize their best selves.
EHTP is undergoing a period of rapid growth in order to meet East Harlem’s significant need for its educational programs. In the next 5 years, the network will expand its grades served, grow the after-school and summer programs, and scale the East Harlem Teaching Residency, which builds a pipeline of prepared, mission-driven educators in partnership with Hunter College. EHTP has committed to expanding its programs to serve 20% of all East Harlem public school students by 2026.

East Harlem Scholars Academies believe that strong school leaders are integral to the success of its scholars. As EHTP continues to expand the reach of its educational programming to serve more students in the East Harlem Community, the Founding High School Principal will further the mission of EHTP and the East Harlem Scholars Academies by designing and creating the framework for and leading the network’s first high school. East Harlem Scholars Academy High School, which will serve approximately 150 9th graders in the 2019-2020 school year, will build on the success and lessons of the East Harlem Scholar Academies elementary and middle school programs, and will incorporate the network’s guiding principles to create a high-performing, student-centered learning environment that prepares students academically, cognitively, and emotionally to excel in high school, college, and beyond.
