HYPE Academy is owned and operated by native New Orleanians Joshua J. and Arianne C. Jolla. As residents of New Orleans East, the Jollas have used HYPE as a vehicle by which they’ve invested in the community since 2011.
Joshua is a Certified Tutor who has been an active Youth Leader & Musician for many years in a local ministry. He focuses much of his personal and professional energy on impacting the lives of young people. As Lead Tutor in the Homework Assistance program, Joshua leads the team in providing exemplary academic assistance to students from schools across the city.
Arianne serves as HYPE’s Director and Lead Instructor. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary & Special Education from Dillard University and a Masters degree in Special Education from the University of New Orleans. Arianne, a Louisiana-Certified school teacher since 2001, exited the public school system in order to devote full-time energy to the further development of HYPE Academy’s programs and to promote the success of its students.
Both Joshua and Arianne are committed to developing a global brand known for providing exceptional and individualized educational services to students across the country- beginning in New Orleans.
