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.

Donnie missed 51 days of school.
