BUILDING A PATHWAY

FROM CRADLE TO COLLEGE AND CAREER

OUR VIRTUAL PATHWAY

We have adapted our traditional program to offer safe alternatives during the coronavirus pandemic. These plans will evolve as we collaborate with Charlottesville City Schools and our partners in assessing community needs. 

If you would like to enroll your child in our services or utilize our facility for school work, please review the list of options below and contact our staff. Space is limited!

Students in grades 5-12 receive one-on-one academic mentoring to help them reach their academic and personal potential.
