Esperanza Preparatory Academy's Full Profile



Esperanza Preparatory Academy says

Esperanza Preparatory Academy (EPA) is a dual-language college preparation school. Students master Spanish as a native or second language, as well as academic, social and communication skills. We offer students Spanish courses with the goal that they will be able to take college/AP courses in Spanish Literature, and become proficient in both Spanish and English. We prepare students for college by providing internship opportunities and a mentor that will expose them to college life/academics. Students work collaboratively with their mentors to arrange college tours and develop college portfolios and have the opportunity to take college courses, all of which prepares them for college.
