Reflecting on the 20th Anniversary of the Learning Corridor

Spearheaded by the Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance (SINA) and Trinity College, the Learning Corridor brought together the Trinity College Boys and Girls Club and four schools - the Hartford Montessori School, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, Greater Hartford Academy of Math and Science, and Hartford Magnet Middle School (which would become Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy - or HMTCA - in 2011).
