The 2021 iHOPE Summer Olympics celebrate the re-opening of New York City! #iHOPEStrongerTogether
Students at the International Academy of Hope look forward to taking part in 2021 iHOPE Summer Olympics. The two-week event will feature events and competitions specially designed for each student’s unique abilities. Launched in 2015, the Olympics motivate our students after months of intensive training and rehabilitation, giving them an opportunity to compete with their peers in a fun and friendly manner. We would like for our students to recognize their potential and realize their dreams.

Art Speaks at iHOPE
This annual fundraiser showcases the students’ talents through art. Art Speaks is a wonderful way for the community to see how iHOPE students use technology to make one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Guests bid on these unique pieces of artwork and 100% of the proceeds go toward purchasing much needed technology for the school. Art Speaks 2021 will be a live, in-person event. This year we are excited to welcome guests to an evening of art to help raise technology funds for our new school in midtown Manhattan. We hope you can join us for Art Speaks 2021 to learn more about our students and our new space! Check back for upcoming details. In the meantime, enjoy this short documentary highlighting Art Speaks.

The students at iHOPE work hard and party hard!. To celebrate the end of the year, our upper school students participated in virtual prom where they dressed up, received awards, played games, and danced the night away. It was one last hurrah to end the most memorable school year yet.
This event, planned by iHOPE's Occupational Therapy department, is designed to maximize student independence, self-advocacy skills, and participation in meaningful activities. We love to end the school year with a bang!
