Thornwell Learning Center and After-School Tutoring
Children who live on campus in Clinton, SC attend local public schools. Those who need academic support come to the Learning Center in the afternoons after school. Thornwell’s Learning Center has a computer center, a fully stocked library, and 16 to 18 tutors helping the children with homework and challenging subjects.
The sad reality for many foster children is that the disruption in their lives leaves little room for keeping up with school. Many children who come to us are grade levels behind, and because of the struggle to keep up, they no longer enjoy learning.
Our goal is to change that—because we believe education is a powerful key to the future for kids, and because we believe that the enrichment, self-confidence, and empowerment that comes through growth in academics is a critical step towards healing.
