Catch Up & Read (CAR)'s mission is to catch at-risk elementary students up to grade level reading by 3rd grade. CAR provides both teacher training and after-school tutoring for low-performing students. CAR develops the solid instructional foundation that meets the needs of every child in the classroom for years to come. This leveraged model enables us to reach more children and achieve a long term, scalable impact in our public schools. Historically, 90% of students participating in Catch Up & Read reach grade level in 1 year and advance at a rate that is 3 times that of their peers.
