EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015

THE STORY:

Esperanza Academy, which means "hope" in Spanish,  is an independent, tuition-free middle school where disadvantaged girls from Lawrence, MA are welcomed into an empowering learning community.

Esperanza Academy 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 of the year, against very 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.  Niniety-one percent of Esperanza students speak a language other than English at home.  Because Esperanza accepts 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.

Esperanza Academy has many noteworthy accomplishments over the past 8 years; all of our middle school students have moved onto secondary programs at private and public institutions. Remarkably, 100% of our first two high school classes have graduated in four years and 80% of those students are currently enrolled in college. The Academy is exceedingly proud of the accomplishments of these girls.  They bolster our steadfast commitment to strive even harder to advance our mission and keep alive their Hope for a bright and productive future.

Our entire Esperanza Academy thanks you for supporting our school!
