Classes meet twice a week from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students enroll in either reading, writing or math. Parent conferences are scheduled at the end of each semester and may occur more frequently upon request. Click here to learn more about the admissions process.
