HOLA on YouTube

The well-being of every HOLA student is at the core of our mission and we believe that a strong family, neighborhood and school are the foundations for developing a healthy child. In addition to our regular programming that includes a wide array of quality academics, arts and athletics classes and activities, HOLA offers resources and opportunities for everyone in the HOLA community. From parenting workshops and healthy cooking classes, to counseling services and summer camp opportunities, together we are building a healthier community.
