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 2022 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 2022 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.

Stay tuned for more information.

Come One Come All!

The 2021 iHOPE Summer Olympics celebrated the re-opening of New York City! #iHOPEStrongerTogether

Students at the International Academy of Hope carried the tradition of the iHOPE Summer Olympics into the pandemic recovery season in 2021. The two-week event featured events and competitions specially designed for each student’s unique abilities. Launched in 2015, the Olympics motivate iHOPE 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.

Prom 2021

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!

A New Home

iHOPE is taking a giant leap forward! In April 2022, the school relocated to a beautiful new site on the corner of Seventh Avenue and 53rd Street in Manhattan. Our ribbon-cutting welcomed family members, friends, politicians, and iHOPE supporters who have helped realize iHOPE’s potential and enriched the learning community we have built together. Designed with our students’ individual abilities, needs and goals in mind, iHOPE’s new facility assures a bright future filled with possibility.
