KnowledgePoints is a company founded and focused on a single purpose: helping children. Our vision is “creating success by changing lives”. We have put this vision into practice by using our high-quality supplemental education programs to help thousands of children throughout the United States. In addition to our retail centers, we have been serving students directly at their schools or through other community programs.
Our after school and summer programs primarily target disadvantaged youth which are generally performing below acceptable academic standards. It is our fundamental belief that programs with a strong academic component focused on the individual needs of each participating student is critical to bridging the “achievement gap”. (see Benefits of After School and Summer Programs) It is also important to work collaboratively with parents, teachers, the District and community to create an effective program.
KnowledgePoints offers a variety of programs primarily tailored to meet the needs of the participating students. Our Programs are designed primarily to improve the academic performance of the participating students. Many of our programs incorporate enrichment activities to enhance the learning environment as well as give the students the opportunity to explore other areas of interest. We generally like to work with local organizations that have an inherent “stake” in the success of the children and the community. Just like KnowledgePoints, we also want to work with an organization that is focused on helping children and has a proven track record of success.

We have served a number of Schools and Districts.
One of the most important measurements of a program’s effectiveness is how well the students performed academically. Our high quality program provides both excellence in the form of significant gains for students, as well as equity, which ensures that no group of students is left out of these gains. This is measured through the completion of a pre- and post-assessment.
We also regularly conduct surveys of both students and parents. This helps us gather feedback as well as further enhance the program, if necessary. The performance results and surveys have been remarkably positive!
