About the School

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 and Advanced Placement (AP) courses in Spanish Literature, and become proficient in both Spanish and English. We prepare students for college by providing them with 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.
