Success Stories

Simply put, The Learning Lamp makes a difference in the lives of children—many of whom would fail to succeed in school if not for our affordable programs.

success_stories_austinWe level the academic playing field by making high quality tutoring, preschool, child care, before and after school care, and innovative enrichment programs accessible to all children, regardless of income.

Take a look at how our programs are helping children meet their potential.

a grandfather gives his young grandsons a chance at a better life.

An unstable life didn’t help matters for young Evan in school. The Learning Lamp was able to turn things around for him and his younger brother.

Credit recovery that offers more than a passing grade.

When Charlie transitioned to junior high, it was as if he hit a brick wall. Algebra was a foreign language he simply did not speak, and there was no one to help him interpret it.

When math makes sense, getting good grades isn’t such a struggle.

MacKenzie Livingston hardly ever earned a C in class. Her report card always came back to her mother, Kim, with the lowest grades being B’s. But Kim knew those Bs came with a struggle.

Breaking down language barriers for Hans.

When Hans Esteban walks into his fourth-grade classroom, he now looks forward to hearing what his teacher has to say. Two years ago, it was a much different story for the 9-year-old.

High priced tutoring didn’t work for Takesha’s daughter or her wallet.

Donations to The Learning Lamp gave her daughter, Ayzahna, a new-found sense of achievement.

Joshua struggled in math.

His and his mother’s frustration came to a boiling point — until he began tutoring with The Learning Lamp.

Donnie missed 51 days of school.

That’s almost a third of the school year – not because he didn’t want to attend, but because of his parents’ problems with drugs and alcohol. Your support helped Donnie end the school year with Bs.

After reading, the children painted their version of Elmer with sponges. 🎨 #preschool #activitiesforkids #welovetolearn
