Understanding that education is a path to success, Spark Learning Project seeks to make that path attainable for those who desire the journey.
Spark Learning Project seeks to build a learning environment that feels like a second home, where every child, regardless of their learning differences, can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We aspire to empower our students with the skills and strategies they need not just for today, but for a lifetime!
Too often, I hear from parents that education today is not individually tailored for their child, but rather it is about their child conforming to education. In 2019, I started Learn Upstate, a tutoring service that expanded into a Hybrid School for families looking for "something different". In the midst of this new endeavor, the Covid school shutdowns arrived, which continued to create learning gaps while exposing the fragility of traditional education systems. The result of these factors means the demand for an individualized approach to education grows by the day.
On this journey, I ran across home, private, and public school families who all desire, often times need, an individualized approach, but are unable to afford it. Understanding that education is a path to success, Spark Learning Project seeks to make that path attainable for those who desire the journey.
We started SLP as a 501(c)(3) to redefine education for children with learning differences. This includes children on the autism spectrum, dyslexia, ADHD, or other diagnoses that need a different approach to education. Our commitment to excellence and flexibility in learning is a promise to empower each student to unlock their full potential and thrive in a world filled with possibilities.
Through the financial support of our donors, we are able to 'Ignite a Love of Learning' for students throughout the Upstate. Won't you join us on this journey?
