The Academic Zone was created with the goal of teaching youth academic and life skills, in order to help them gain knowledge and confidence in their own abilities, with the hopes of fostering a commitment to staying in school. Along with an improvement in their academics, teachers agree that the children are more engaged, focused, and enthusiastic about learning.
Throughout the 2014-15 academic year, the Academic Zone:

  • reached 80 at-risk youth, ranging from grades 1-6

  • had 100% of students pass their school and ministry exams

  • had no students attend summer school
