Language Enrichment Academic Program (LEAP)

 

LEAP-is an academic program for students who struggle in school. Our mission is to be a bridge for students to achieve academic success in the shortest amount of time possible. We offer a half day program with very strategic approaches to children who have difficulty with reading, math and writing. Our strategies are ideal for students who also have difficulty attending to tasks.

Some students only need a partial year to be able to perform at or above their peers. Imagine that, your child no longer struggling in school, no more nights of experiencing frustration with homework. Most of all, your child will feel confident in his abilities and have a greater love for learning.
