Open Doors Academy works to protect, inspire, nurture and challenge adolescents to reach their full potential.
We are a Greater Cleveland-based, non-profit organization that is committed to ending the cycle of poverty, through proven educational support systems for middle and high school students. We create ambassadors of change who make a positive influence in the Cleveland community and beyond.
The organization was established in 2002 as an after school drop-in program for youth living in high-risk environments at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Cleveland Heights. Open Doors Academy, "ODA," now has the resources and capacity to serve over 450 middle and high school youth and 900 parents and siblings in Greater Cleveland.
Our scholars participate in project based learning experiences such as core enrichment programs and academic tutoring built around their developmental needs, full-day summer camps and service learning trips. At the core of the program is building a safe haven filled with support, creating a sense of community, and fostering the kids’ confidence. ODA builds this environment by engaging parents, teachers and other community partners.
