Hope Partnership’s Graduate Support Program

The Hope Partnership’s Graduate Support Program is committed to providing a robust support system for all 200 of Hope Partnership School alumni. 

Graduate Support staff foster a genuine, long-lasting relationship with students and families starting in the 5th grade. GSP’s first goal is to ensure alumni experience a smooth and successful transition into high school. 

In addition to navigating the high school application process, Graduate Support provides ongoing tutoring in core subject areas and on college placement tests such as the SAT. Graduate Support staff coach young adults to discern their post-secondary pathways in conjunction with families. 

Most importantly, Hope Partnership for Education provides a safe environment for alumni to engage with their peers during social events, mentor current middle school students, and explore the city on one of the many field trips. We make a lifelong commitment to each student with the purpose of investing in their future.

Graduate Support means everything to me. The name itself has had a major impact on me because there is real and genuine support there. Anytime I have needed assistance or advice during my time in high school, and now college, I knew I could always count on the Graduate Support Team at Hope. I have learned so much through the Graduate Support Program.

I come back to Hope for Graduate Support. When I am at Graduate Support, I complete my school work and play basketball. Sometimes, I use the Graduate Support Lounge to chill and relax.
