Be an Advocate for Your Child’s Education & Esperanza Academy

#EsperanzaNews, Esperanza in the News, Featured, Uncategorized

Esperanza Academy Charter School in coordination with Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF) is hosting a Parent & Community Meeting in order to encourage parents to be advocates for their children’s education as well as for Esperanza Academy and the charter school movement.

Founded in 2000, Esperanza Academy Charter School exists to provide a high-quality education that prepares critically thinking, socially capable, spiritually sensitive and culturally aware young adults who can use English, Spanish and technology as tools for success in the 21st century. Currently, Esperanza Academy serves 1000 students in grades 6-12.  Esperanza is also home to a 2 year accredited college which makes higher education more accessible than ever in Hunting Park neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Esperanza is dedicated to empowering Hispanic communities through education, and one way we hope to do this is by completing our educational pipeline to provide a seamless learning experience from Kindergarten to College. Last year, Esperanza applied to expand our schools to include elementary education. We are closer than ever to completing this goal.

The Parent & Community Meeting will be held on Monday, February 9th at 6:00 pm at Esperanza Academy Middle School.  A Parent Academy Leadership Training will begin Wednesday, February 11th at 6:00 pm at Esperanza Academy Middle School and will run four consecutive Wednesdays, February 11th, 18th, 25th and March 4th.

If you have questions, please contact David Solivan, Director of Student Development/Family and Community, at 267-928-3539 extension 1110.
