Parent Information

The CAVE tutoring program is designed to provide a supportive and engaging learning environment for students in grades K-12. Through interactive activities, personalized guidance, and a fun-filled approach, we aim to instill a lifelong love for learning in your child. Tutoring sessions will take place in small groups with 30-minute opportunities for individual support. The program runs for 10-weeks and participating children must be able to commit to attending all sessions (unless illness or emergency). Children 12 and under must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign them in and must be picked up by a parent or guardian to be signed out.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00-6:30pm beginning February 20-May 2 (10-week program)

Required Parent Orientation:
On Tuesday, February 20, parents or guardians must accompany their child to their first tutoring session and participate in a required parent orientation.

Application Process:
Due to the high demand for tutoring services and our limited number of volunteers, an application must be submitted. Applications will be reviewed based on the order in which they are received and children will be admitted to the program based on our ability to pair your child’s tutoring needs with tutor-expertise.

The application for Fall 2024 participation will open on August 12 at 8am and and will close on September 2.
