About Us

What started more than 10 years ago as a simple idea - to provide children in Johnstown, PA with access to high quality tutoring without the high price tag — has grown into a multi-faceted program that gives children, families, and schools greater options for improving academic achievement.

Lorraine Nulton, D.Ed, an educational psychologist, discovered the need for an affordable and effective alternative to high-cost tutoring during her work with children in public schools. A generous donation from the Nulton family enabled us to open our doors and begin to carry out our mission.

Today, we are a respected organization that serves more than 37,197 children and adults from 52 school districts and 71 non-public and private schools and other organizations in 19 Pennsylvania counties and communities in Maryland and West Virginia.
