Our Impact


Our greatest achievement is the positive progress of the students. On average, our students are improving reading skills by 2.3 years of progress in one program year, while simultaneously bonding with a caring individual who becomes a trusted adult championing their success. In addition, parents and students report an increase in eagerness to learn, confidence, focus, willingness to participate in school activities, and test scores.

Our Programs


Center for Success has developed programs based on student interest and goals identified through student assessments.  Our programs bring together students and community partners during one on one, small group and whole class sessions to allow students to participate in various opportunities.  Each experience allows students to employ diverse learning modalities that give a deeper understanding across content areas.  By inspiring students to learn in a way that represents themselves and their interests, we are able to fuel the eagerness to discover what ignites their passion.
