COVID-19 arrived, but it hasn't stopped us.

This past year, kids were isolated. We know it has been tough on parents and students alike. We see all of your tremendous efforts to keep your students on track and applaud the ways families have navigated the pandemic. Working with your student allows us to walk alongside you and help provide support and the academic boost your student deserves.

Our commitment to learning remains steadfast in the wake of COVID. We recognize that this time has challenged our scholars and the transitions between different styles of learning was not easy.

We honor the agility of our students by meeting them where they are to provide engaging support whether online or in person. Scholars Unlimited unwavering approach connects programs with scholars to provide the academic boost they will need as they continue to navigate learning during and beyond the pandemic.

As we continue to move forward, we are hopeful, and also know that returning back to exactly how things were prior to 2020 is not likely. We recognize that there are many things that may remain ever changing, and that our families and students might benefit from continued community support, resources and information.
