East Harlem Tutorial Program offers a year-round, college-readiness program for middle school students that provides young adults with academic support, engaging enrichment programs, and a caring community. All EHTP after-school programs are tuition-free with admissions preference for residents of East Harlem.


The Middle School After-School Program meets five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Scholars in grades 6-8 are provided the opportunity to discover new interests and grow their passion with a variety of elective courses — including LEGO Robotics, Dance, Comic Books, Theater and Swimming (Saturday’s only). The program begins September 9, 2019, and will be located at Patrick Henry, PS/IS 171 (19 E103rd St., New York, NY). For more information, contact Giselle Lopez at (212) 831-0650.


Scholars choose from electives such as performing arts, STEM, and creative writing. Our signature electives include:
• FIRST Lego League Robotics
• Theater
• Dance
• Leadership Through Gaming
