ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT

By focusing on homework and classroom enrichment, volunteer tutors provide students with the academic help they need succeed in school. Metro also empowers students to take their education into their own hands by connecting them with scholarship organizations. 

CHARACTER EDUCATION

By learning about virtues and good habits, students develop the necessary tools to become better students, daughters, sisters and friends. In the character development class, students discuss and learn how to practically implement virtues such as respect, service to others and hard work.

INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION

Each student that participates in Metro programs is assigned a volunteer tutor-mentor that works with them the entire school year. With a focus on academics and character development, time spent each week with the same volunteer has proven to be an integral part of the overall improvement of the student. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Metro students participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities to gain skills and confidence while discovering interest and future hobbies. Some of our activities include:

Visual and Performing Arts
Fitness and Sports
Dance Classes
Public Speaking
Culinary Classes 

PARENT PROGRAM

Metro's parent programs support parents in their role as the primary educators of their children through classes, discussions, conferences, and more.
