The goal of the program is to prepare at risk students from grades 1 to 12 for academic success through a multi-pronged learning approach to include tutoring, using computers for academic research and enrichment activities such as music events and outings to art and cultural museums. Visits to selected universities and colleges will also be organized for these students as an enhancement to the educational support this project will provide. The Village Project education and Cultural Enrichment Academy will employ the established strategy of one-on-one tutoring to help attain our stated goal.

Academy Expectations

Although results will vary per individual student, The Village Project, Inc. expects our students to pass with a letter grade no lower than a C in the classes that they are at risk for failing, a circumstance that would negatively impact their possibility for promotion to the next grade or graduation if they are seniors. To ensure that the capabilities of the program are in line with the expectations of the program, The Village Project, Inc. is committed to offering experienced tutors, inventive approaches to learning, computer technology and a safe learning environment.

Measuring Success

All students enrolled in the tutoring academy will be given before and after assessments to be used as one aspect of measurements when determining the increase in proficiency of each student in their respective subjects and areas of job and social skill development, and level of academic growth for a school semester. Additional assessments will be conducted periodically to determine the success of the tutoring strategy or to help identify the need to alter the strategy to better meet the needs of the participant. However, the ultimate measurement will come from the students’ demonstrated ability to complete lessons in the classroom setting and achieving the letter grade “C” or better.
