Paraclete is recognized as a unique learning community that expands opportunities and provides rich academic, social, and emotional experiences to under-served middle school youth.

Our Mission

Paraclete is an out-of-school educational enrichment program, offering Boston students in the 4th through 8th grade the academic support, homework and tutoring assistance, enrichment classes, and education-based field trips needed to boost achievement.

Paraclete strives to support students and their families:
  1. To improve academic performance,
  2. To increase academic engagement and motivation, and
  3. To investigate and find appropriate middle and high schools
