TEL HI’s Elementary School Academy (ESA) helps families by providing support between the end of a child’s school day and the end of a parent’s workday. Our highly trained staff leads children through all sorts of activities, from tutoring and homework assistance to field trips, STEAM activities, recreation, and even community service.
