College Access

LEARN aims to provide resources that help to increase College Knowledge through its Gear Up Keys to College program for both students and parents. Resources include a complete K-8 college access curriculum. Students take part in grade appropriate curriculum designed to have them identify their early interests and to begin to create a road map to developing next steps along their journey to college. In addition services are offered around parent education and leadership development to help parents become better informed advocates of their children’s future goals. Finally LEARN provides services such as faculty facilitations to help create consensus around more focused strategic delivery of resources to students. Finally through LEARN’s GEAR UP program, services are offered around college visits, SAT/ACT test preps/college advising and youth leadership development a concerted effort is made to encourage and support post-secondary options through all of LEARN’s program offerings.

After School Programs

LEARN offers K-8 elementary after school programming through it’s ASPIRE program. A unique facet of the program is the weaving in of the College Knowledge component for all students. All academic support is tied to Common Core standards through project based learning modules. Our effort to create this learning environment directly meets LEARN’s Fifth Core Value, which is to support rigorous and meaningful instruction for all students with applicable connections to the real world.


LEARN offers non-school hours programming for high schools through its PREP program. Enrichment programming ranges from SAT/ACT prep to Cosmetology classes to jazz band ensemble. The focus of the PREP program is that it is largely student driven and works to support the interests of students on campus through a student PREP committee. LEARN’s GEAR UP focus is an integral part of the high school PREP program.

Youth Sports & Recreation

Through KidsPlay, LEARN provides organized league play around sports such as Basketball, Olympic Team Handball, Cross Country and Flag Football. Participation is open to any school interested in participating in wholly school based team competition with an emphasis on learning first and competing second.

Parent Involvement

LEARN has an active parent involvement component focused on parent education, parent leadership and parent focused workshops developed from parent interest surveys. A key focus of LEARN’s Parent Component is providing needed resources and information around family healthy lifestyles and post-secondary school options.
