Community Involvement

All students deserve access to high-quality tutoring and test preparation. We are grateful and proud to partner with terrific organizations to improve access and to help students earn academic and test day success.

Amphibious Achievement

Amphibious Achievement is an athletic and academic mentorship program for high school students in the greater Boston area. Through a combination of coaching in rowing and swimming, and a focus on college-preparatory academics, our approach works to expand higher education opportunities for students. Students, called Achievers in the program, learn how to translate the grit, discipline, and confidence taught in athletics into the classroom, and are equipped with the mentorship and skills necessary to graduate high school and succeed beyond it. This program is completely student-run by MIT undergraduates and is free of cost to all students who participate. Open Door Education is proud to have helped train mentors to coach students for the SAT.


Epiphany School

Epiphany is an independent school for children of economically-disadvantaged families in Boston with financial aid for all students. We admit children of diverse faiths, races, cultures, and cognitive profiles. and we challenge our students to discover and develop the fullness of their individual gifts. Epiphany’s small classes, individualized curricula, and extended school days provide rigorous academic, moral and social instruction. In close partnership with families, we are an innovative learning community that affords structured support to help students thrive. Together we are a school that never gives up on a child. Epiphany trains aspiring urban teachers and provides abiding support to its graduates who are prepared to contribute intelligently, morally, and actively to the society they inherit. Open Door Education is proud to collaborate with Epiphany to provide SSAT/ISEE/HSPT preparation for all 7th and 8th graders.
