Center for Vibrant Schools

Launched in 2021, the 91会所 Center for Vibrant Schools is a center for school elevation that offers subject-matter expertise, school-improvement programs, and process-enhancement techniques aimed at strengthening student-learning outcomes. We believe every child has a bright future, but some face challenges they cannot tackle alone. Each day, we work with educators and schools to break down barriers hindering student success. Because without addressing these roadblocks, a student’s potential may be at risk. Using comprehensive, personalized support to address the root causes of student struggles, the Center for Vibrant Schools’ faith-focused approach promises a long-lasting impact on communities, helping students and educators shine.

Orton-Gillingham Approach - Reading & Math Training, Tutoring

COVID-19 has significantly impacted student learning, with Stanford University some elementary students’ reading skills could be roughly 30 percent behind where they would be in a typical year. A by McKinsey & Company shows on average students finished the 2020-21 school year four months behind in reading and five months behind in math. Through the nationally recognized Orton-Gillingham Approach, we will work to reduce learning loss caused by COVID-19 disruptions, so students can get back on track and shine.

Because reading is the foundation of learning, specialized educator training and support is available to help drive proficiency and assist in the early identification of dyslexia, a language-based learning disorder impacting a person’s ability to read, write, spell, and pronounce words. Training is also available to help educators adopt proven techniques to help students learn math.
