For many students, school can be a daily challenge. For low-income or new immigrant students, those challenges often prove daunting; for some, there’s no one at home to help with school work, while for others, there are language and cultural barriers to overcome. Many also deal with personal and family issues that make it difficult to focus on their studies. This leads disadvantaged students to believe that they can’t be successful at school – or life.

Our highly regarded school-based programs promote educational success and family involvement for disadvantaged students, providing culturally competent content thanks to our committed and multicultural staff.
