Academy Program

The Boys Hope Girls Hope Academy is the seven-year continuum of support provided to middle school (Hope Prep) and high school (College Road)


Through our holistic curriculum, Scholars in the BHGH Academy receive academic enrichment, STEM education, hands-on learning experiences, and college and career counseling, as well as participate in service opportunities, leadership experiences, and community-building opportunities.

Rajan Center

The success of our Academy Program is proven through the success of our Scholars and we want to provide that opportunity for even more motivated students in the area. On June 1,  2019, we opened The Rajan Center, a 22,000 sq. ft. building that will be the home of the program and serve as the year-round ‘home away from home’ for hundreds of Scholars. The center features dynamic classrooms, an art studio, a STEM lab, counseling and study areas and physical fitness spaces.
