Your Support Will save education

Students are in need of creative educational outlets!
Help a student like Journie with your scholarship support.

Like so many other students, second-grader Journie struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic when distance learning replaced in-person instruction at the end of the year.
CCE’s response to this shift in the educational landscape was to offer a summer program designed to help students get back to in-person, in-classroom learning.

Journie’s Aunt Farrah

Was hired by CCE to teach in our summer Foundations School Academic Arts Camp. By her own admission, Farrah wanted to experience teaching in our program to see if it might be a good fit for Journie, especially since she had doubts about how impactful the arts are in education.

What Farrah observed led her to trust and whole-heartedly embrace Journie’s attendance in the program. Happily, Journie’s experience here gave her a love for learning. She began asking her mom not to pick her up early because she would miss her learning time. The program particularly changed her experience of reading. Today, she asks her mom to take her to the library for chapter books that she chooses to read over watching TV. Her excitement did not end with reading, it carried over into math, art, and the other subjects being taught.

Journie was just one of 44 students who attended The Foundations School’s Academic Arts Camp. Many of the other students discovered their love of learning as well. 97% of our students increased their reading skills by one or more reading levels, and 83% met two or more individualized math goals by the end of our summer program. We are proud to have helped each child to make up for two months of lost learning in a safe, structured summer program.
