Customized, intensive curriculum

Designed by seasoned, credentialed classroom teachers, our curriculum reinforces the basic foundations of literacy: Letter Knowledge, Phonological Awareness, Phoneme Awareness, Alphabetic Principle, Vocabulary, and Decoding skills. These foundations are embedded within fun and engaging activities that encourage students to grow in their reading, writing, and social-emotional skills.

Qualified Staff

Classrooms are led by credentialed teachers who demonstrate prior experience in working with historically underserved youths.

Small class sizes

The impact is maximized by ensuring that every student has the opportunity to receive one-on-one coaching.

Nutrition

A well-balanced breakfast and lunch are available to all students for the entirety of the program.

Enrichment Tracks

Students can enroll in a "track" where they can learn weekly skills such as coding or performing arts lessons.

Tutor Matching

After completing the program, families will have the option to enroll in online tutoring to ensure continued success and growth for their children.
