EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

THE STORY:

Esperanza Academy is an independent, tuition-free middle school where disadvantaged girls from Lawrence, Mass., are welcomed into an empowering learning community.

Esperanza offers its students a transformative education that integrates a rigorous academic curriculum with cocurricular programs in athletics, the arts, community service, cultural-enrichment, social skills, and spirituality. The pride of Esperanza is its students: Girls who are willing to learn for almost 10 hours a day, 11 months out of the year, against challenging odds.

The city of Lawrence consistently ranks among the lowest in high-school graduation rates in the Commonwealth. The teenage-pregnancy rate is four times the state average. Ninety-one percent of Esperanza students speak a language other than English at home. Because Esperanza accept students using a lottery system, many of our students have never received the attention, nurturing, and support they need to gain the academic and social capital to achieve success.

It has been noteworthy year for Esperanza Academy. Our first class of alumnae class graduated high school in 2013. Remarkably, 100 percent of those young women graduated! And most of them, over 80 percent are currently enrolled in college. The Academy is exceedingly proud of these accomplishments and the many accomplishments of our students. They bolster our steadfast commitment to strive even harder to achieve and advance our mission. 

We thank you in advance for supporting our 65 girls.
