Open Doors Academy’s mission is to protect, inspire, nurture and challenge youth to reach their full potential. ODA serves students living in at-risk environments at 10 middle schools and 3 high schools by providing year-round out-of-school time programming.
We partner with the schools and communities; engage the entire family, not just the student; and we stick with our students from 6th grade through high school graduation and beyond. Students develop excellent written and oral communication skills, demonstrate personal accountability, learn effective work/study habits, and strengthen their critical thinking/problem solving abilities. As a result, 100% of ODA students who have participated in 3 years of programming have graduated from high school and 97% have continued with post-secondary education.
