The Learning Zone

Providing meaningful opportunities for learning, resulting in academic, social, emotional and spiritual growth in children and their families.

The Learning Zones provide meaningful opportunities for learning. Not only do students receive help with their homework, it is checked before going home. Students are able to work on school projects at the center. They also receive tutoring in areas such as reading and math after receiving an assessment upon enrollment. The Salvation Army Learning Zones also provide a number of enrichment programs through team-building, art, physical activities, and science to enhance their capabilities and self-esteem, with the goal of teaching them to make positive choices in all aspects of their lives. Service offerings include preschool, after school, and summer day camp and vary depending on location.

Below are the objectives that we strive and are committed to:

Academic Growth

- Provide educational opportunities for all levels of academics

- Provide meaningful activities that promote reading, writing, and problem solving

Emotional Growth

- Provide an encouraging atmosphere to nurture positive living

- Help develop self-esteem, communication skills, and emotional maturity

Social Growth

- Provide recreational activities that support team building and cooperation

- Provide arts, crafts, music, drama, etc. to enhance skill development

- Provide an example for students to emulate

Spiritual Growth

- Provide a caring, Christian environment in which people feel safe and loved

- Provide a model for Christ-like behavior

- Teach Spiritual values and biblical truth
