Stages to becoming a young champion
Our tutors are equipped and able to teach from elementary to high school level subjects, like reading and language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Additionally, All lessons are adjusted to best fit the student. As a supplement, we work with the student and guardian in creating a plan for academic achievement beyond the elementary, middle, and high school years.
Stage 1 - New beginnings (grades K-10)
Student receives tutoring in areas of need. Additional they can be matched with a mentor, when necessary to stir up their inner-self.
Stage 2 - Launching (Grades 11-12)
A student is assisted with career search, and receiving college readiness coaching. Youth also receives help with the financial aid process, if necessary.
Stage 3- Soaring (Young Adult)
Youth is soaring at this stage. They are role models for their peers. They have been accepted at a post-secondary institution and are excelling academically. "They made me not give up...if it wasn't for Boxwood I wouldn't be where I'm at today." - S.C., 21
Stage 4 - Champion
Champions are rising young leaders, college graduates, entrepreneurs, and/or gainfully employed. By this stage, our youth are already giving back to their community via peer mentoring, and serving in leadership roles.
Our Mission & Purpose: To work with community stakeholders to establish learning environments where youth are developing economic and social opportunities for themselves, and others.
