Tutoring

St. Anthony of Padua Elementary

Each Monday afternoon, a group of 12 Hoban students travels to St. Anthony Elementary School in Akron's North Hill neighborhood. They join students from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in working with first through third grade students. Many of the students at St. Anthony are from international families from countries such as Bhutan and Nepal. They are continuing to learn English as their parents are not native English speakers. The tutors help them improve their English skills and assist them with homework.

St. Mary School

On Thursdays, about 15 Hoban students venture to downtown Akron to work as part of the St. Mary School enrichment program with students from St. Vincent-St. Mary and adults from the greater Akron area. In this program, students from kindergarten through eighth grade may stay after school to get individual help. Tutors provide assistance with spelling, math facts, vocabulary and general homework.
