Academic Services

Growing Scholars Educational Center specializes in academic tutoring and standardized test preparation.  Let us unlock your child’s full potential by making learning fun.

We take a comprehensive approach to academic subject tutoring by setting clear and obtainable goals for success, by reinforcing core study skills, and by providing our students with subject-specific instruction.

Students will improve their grades, raise their test scores, learn proven study skills, and build their academic self-confidence, allowing them to reach their full potential.

Growing Scholars uses a research based assessment to identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses in the areas of reading, reading comprehension, listening, vocabulary, math and writing upon enrolling in the center. This assessment is free and will help us identify the student’s academic level for specific skills. The assessment is administrated to each student individually and the results are discussed with the family to create a Customized Learning Plan to meet the academic needs of the student.
