IMG 2932

The Afterschool Scholars Program enrolls students in grades K-6, with a special club program for middle school students in grades 7 & 8. The program operates Monday through Thursday from 3:30-5:30 p.m.We dedicate 45 minutes of classroom instruction each day to helping our scholars get a good start on their homework. 

Afterschool scholars in 4th through 6th grade are invited to participate in the Virtual Tutoring program, a partnership with Penn State University's College of Education. Each HIP scholar is partnered with a pre-service teacher from Penn State - University Park who is training to become a certified teacher in Pennsylvania. The tutors and scholars meet once per week for one hour for a total of 18 weeks throughout the academic year. During tutoring sessions, the Penn State tutors assist scholars with their homework and other school assignments in addition to leading educational activities that demonstrate research-based competencies for supporting language learners across the academic curriculum
