event_available Writing Program
The Writing Program at Achievement Learning Center is designed to help students primarily understand the process and tools used for authorship. In this program, we focus on helping students think about the stages a writer goes through to clearly communicate a message. Students gain an understanding of how an author paints pictures of words and ideas in the reader’s mind. Understanding these processes helps students develop as authors themselves.
event_available Homework Success Program
School doesn’t always go as smoothly as students and parents would like. Frustration can quickly mount when students don’t understand a concept encountered during homework, or don’t feel they know how to prepare for an upcoming test. What can be distressing for a parent, is to have a child suddenly not understanding a subject that has always come easy. Furthermore, students that are challenged with maintaining organization of their materials, as well as deficiencies with successfully planning for quizzes, tests and projects can constantly feel behind. At Achievement Learning Center, we understand these concerns. "Homework Success" is the ideal supplement for a student who feels unsuccessful in a particular school course.

The mathematics curriculum is a highly interactive program that enables students to develop a solid foundation in the basic concepts and language of all areas of math including algebra, geometry, calculus and trigonometry. The curriculum is comprehensive and fully correlated to mastery standards, as well as state and nationally adopted textbooks. In order to successfully understand math concepts, we must build on prior learning, therefore it is essential to begin each students’ plan based on what the student knows.
event_available Study Skills Program
The study skills program offered at Achievement Learning Center is designed for students in grades four through twelve. Students are often told that they need to use their time more effectively, to take better notes in class, to do their homework, and to study better for tests. However, they are not often told how to do these things. The program at Achievement Learning Center is meant to teach an understanding of why study skills are important.

event_available Early Reading Program
It's our goal to equip students with the necessary tools and motivation to become successful readers. Reading is the most important skill required for success in life – it really is fundamental. In our Early Reading Program, students are taught to read independently through the use of a systematic approach. In this approach, students are taught sounds and the importance of blending sounds into words. For phonics instruction to work, it needs to be systematic… it cannot start somewhere in the middle. Our program teaches letter knowledge and phonemic awareness, or an understanding that letters represent sounds, by techniques that are meaningful and interactive.
