Our Piece of the Pie is a multi-service agency that provides individualized case management and support services for youth ages 14-24, including supportive educational and workforce training. 
Opportunity High School (OHS) in Hartford is the first partnership school in Connecticut. Based on a model initiated in New York between Good Shepherd Services and the New York Department of Education, Opportunity High School (OHS) provides the three R's necessary to be successful in school: Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. The school is a small, academically rigorous diploma-granting high school which combines the unique skills and expertise of Our Piece of the Pie and Hartford Public Schools, the two school partners. School governance is shared equally between the school system and OPP. In addition to HPS instruction, each student is enrolled in OPP's Pathways to Success Program and is assigned a Youth Development Specialist who helps them reach their academic goals, including post-secondary education goals and employment goals.

The Learning Academy at Bloomfield (LAB) combines the rigor of Bloomfield’s education with OPP’s proven youth development principle. The school is a small, academically rigorous diploma-granting high school; governance is shared equally between the school system and OPP.
