About East Harlem Tutorial Program:

Founded in 1958, East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) prepares students with the academic skills, strength of character and emotional well-being to excel in high school and college, to lead in their communities and to realize their best possible selves. As a vital education center in East Harlem, EHTP operates out-of-school time programming that provides academic enrichment, college-ready resources and social-emotional support for students in grades K-12. In 2011, EHTP extended its service to the community by opening a K-8 public charter school, East Harlem Scholars Academy. Due to the success of Scholars Academy and the growing demand for high-quality public education options in East Harlem, we opened Scholars Academy II in 2013.
