To register your child in tutoring:


A parent or guardian must complete the Tutorial Registration Form. Once the form is completed, please return it to our office. You will recieve a follow-up phone call to schedule an assessment for your K-8th grade students, upon completion of ALL sections of the application.

There will be a $5 Assessment Fee for each K-8th grade student, due the day of the scheduled assessment. There will also be a one-time, nonrefundable Enrollment Fee for each child enrolled in the tutoring program (K-12th graders). For 2017-2018, the Enrollment Fee is $40 per child, and is due once a child is placed at a tutoring site and prior to starting the tutoring session. If you are eligible for a scholarship (reducing the fee to $20 per child), we ask you to please provide the proper need verification documents when returning your child's completed application to our office. Examples of these documents include a Free/Reduced Lunch letter from your child's school or even a copy of your Medicaid card.
