Students & Families

A caring, committed volunteer can make a lasting difference in the life of a child, regardless of the child’s current level of academic ability. Working with a tutor not only sharpens academic skills, but also bolsters a student’s confidence.

Cluster accepts new students in grades K-8, with priority enrollment going to students in K-3. Students may remain in the program through grade 12. MORE >>
