600 W Third Street
We launched our middle school program in partnership with Third Street Community Center in the Fall of 2014 as a result of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant. This program serves EB Aycock and CM Eppes Middle schools and is for young ladies only. Building Hope at Third Street is similar to our existing sites with a focus on faith and character education. However, being located at Third Street has enabled us to strengthen our offering of the arts – dance, drama, music among other disciplines are available to our young ladies.
Moreover, the grant has enabled us to provide a strong tutor to student ratio of 8:1, STEAM enrichment opportunities and the use of educational software such as STRIDE and other applications strengthen academic performance.
