S.P.A.R.K. (Summers Producing Academically Ready Kids)

S.P.A.R.K. is a free 6 week program providing math and reading enrichment activities with the goal of reducing or preventing Summer Learning Loss. We are partnering with organizations that offer summer programs targeting economically disadvantaged youth in Arlington and Dallas. Students work with our experienced classroom teachers to hone and develop core skills that will keep them sharp over the summer and give them a strong start in the fall.

Educational Coaching goes several steps beyond traditional tutoring. In addition to content mastery we focus on the whole student by helping them develop problem solving skills, time and resource management, study skills, and effective test taking strategies. Our goal is to build foundational tools that enable our students to achieve success in school and increase college and career readiness. Experienced classroom teachers meet for one-on-one sessions in students homes or virtually.

Students grades K-12 receive weekly, one hour private sessions.


Educational Coaching is provided free to economically disadvantaged students. Program cost per student - $400

At an ARD (Admission, Review, and Dismissal), teachers, administrators, and other staff members meet to determine the eligibility of a student for the Special Education Program because of a special need or a learning disability. Our ARD Advocates are professionals who support the family and provide guidance throughout the ARD process. They work with the family to identify academic and/or behavioral goals for their student and special education services and accommodations that can be provided by the school to help meet those goals. ARD Advocates are not attorneys and do not provide legal advice. ARD Advocacy is provided free to families that qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch program or other government assistance.
