After School Academic Programming
2012 / 2013 School Year
Kathryn Veryser, Coordinator
Is an after school program that provides additional reading and math instruction for students who attend Pratt Community School in grades kindergarten through fifth. Students participate in small group learning, one-on-one tutoring and academic choice. Our goal is to help all students meet or exceed grade level benchmarks.
Pratt Achievers strives to have a low student to staff ratio of 5:1. In order to reach this goal, we utilize licensed teachers and a number of qualified, well-trained and talented staff and volunteers.

Pratt Achievers focuses on working with students who could benefit from extra instruction in reading, writing, and/or math.

Learning takes place through interactive and hands-on instruction.
