We had the chance to sit down with Annemarie Grassi, CEO of Open Doors Academy, and an Open Doors’ student, Yidiayah Box. Open Doors Academy provides wrap-around after-school programming, education, and support for students in select schools around the Cleveland area. Open Doors serves children from 5th grade through undergraduate. 100% of students who complete the 3-year middle school program graduate high school and many go on to college. Open Doors serves children in economically depressed communities, fully 95% of their students come from low-income homes.
